GFW Announces TV Deal On TV55 In New York
Hot on the heels of TNA’s announcement of their new deal with Destination America, TNA founder Jeff Jarrett has finally, after nearly a year of speculation, announced a TV deal for his fledgling GFW promotion. Starting in Janaury, they will air at 1 am on TV 55 in New York City, with the possibility of other overnight programming based on GFW’s ratings performance.
“This is a great opportunity for us,” said Jarrett, “We will be on TV in the biggest media market in the nation, and while TV 55 may not exactly be the juggernaut that other networks in the New York market are, we’re going to be central to TV 55’s overall lineup and look forward to the exposure this deal will provide us to New Yorkers who don’t have cable.”
When asked for comment, TNA President Dixie Carter said “We’re really happy for Jeff, this is a big step for him and it makes us feel a lot better about having to settle for Destination America.”
In addition to their weekly timeslot that will cater to the hooker and vampire crowd, GFW is enthusiastic about potential quarterly specials that could air live on TV 55 from their home base at the Sandbar in Mastic Beach, Long Island.
