WorldNow has signed new partnership agreements with nine station groups encompassing 16 TV station Web sites, bringing its total number of media partners to over 280, it announced today.

The new partnership agreements include five Drewry stations; three Journal stations; one Landmark station; one Monticello Broadcasting station; one NPM, Inc. station; one Schurz station; two Sunbeam stations; one Sunbelt station; and one Waterman station. (See station listing below.)
“We are really honored and delighted that these station groups have decided to incorporate WorldNow’s Internet solutions into their local media Web sites,” says Gary Gannaway, President and CEO of WorldNow.
“WorldNow is truly a full-service company in every sense of the word,” says Marty Ostrow of KOIN Portland, Oregon. “They bring both the site publishing tools and the revenue support. In fact, within the first 60 days of our agreement, we have already generated $600,000 in brand-new revenue. That’s what I call customer service!”
“We’ve seen the dramatic improvements and increased revenue that WorldNow has helped bring about for other station Web sites, and we look forward to taking our site to the next level, as well,” says
Larry Patton of Drewry Broadcasting. “In this rapidly changing news and technology environment, we appreciate working with a company that can keep us on the leading edge.”
