The change will take place in 2015 and will help to solidify the relationship between Univision and Bounce, which describes itself as the first broadcast TV network for African Americans. In addition to the new carriage arrangement, Bounce renewed its deal with Univision to air as a multicast channel on its stations in San Francisco, Boston, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Raleigh and Tampa. “Bounce TV has been a hit for our stations,” Univision Television Group President Kevin Cuddihy says. “We are looking forward to expanding our successful relationship to more markets.” The companies didn’t disclose financial terms. But Bounce TV Distribution EVP Jeffrey Wolf says the new agreements “ensure that the leading over the air broadcaster targeting the Hispanic viewer and the only over the air network targeting African Americans are side by side for many years to come.”
