Heartland Returns To Chicago On WJYS
The Heartland Network, Luken Communications’ country music and lifestyle multicast channel, has returned to the Chicago market (DMA 3) on WJYS.
The independent station, owned by Oxford Media Group, began broadcasting Heartland over-the-air on ch. 62.4 on Oct. 1. Heartland is also available to Comcast viewers on ch. 385.
Joel Wertman, president of Luken Communications, said: “These are exciting times for Heartland. Not only are we experiencing exceptional growth in our over-the-air and cable viewership, but our team is investing in more original content including a soon to be released Americana series and the production of several specials. We’re proud to partner with Oxford Media Group to answer Chicago’s call for the return of Heartland as a key step in Heartland’s strategic plan.”
