Proven and Measurable Results

CONTACT US

It’s our job to provide ideas that are proven to work for your category of business. We’re able to do this by leaning on our success stories and thousands of deep conversations with business owners like you - locally and through Gray Television’s local news authorities in 100+ markets. Our most successful advertisers use the power of video - using sight, sound, motion, and emotion - to deliver a compelling message of value to their best customers on television (both traditional broadcast and streaming) while using a variety of digital strategies to engage and remind those viewers across multiple screens.

Broadcast Television

WBKO’s ABC, FOX, and CW channels reach over 78,000 households in our Designated Marketing Area (DMA) of Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Metcalfe, and Warren Counties. Our total household coverage is closer to 150,000 because of loyal viewership in surrounding counties as well! WBKO is South Central Kentucky’s legacy local authority for local news, weather, and sports. Running your commercial on WBKO’s air will associate your brand with our trusted content.

Our viewers watch over the air (antenna), through multiple cable providers throughout the area, Dish Network, streaming TV providers like Hulu Live and YouTube TV, and WBKO’s Live Stream which is available on our website, mobile apps, and TV apps.

Streaming Television (Premion)

A perfect companion for broadcast television, our Premion network allows us to also run your commercial with 125+ premium direct publishing partners on Smart TV’s, Connected TV’s (CTV) and Over-the-Top (OTT) devices like ROKU, Apple TV, etc...

By targeting your customer’s household and consumer information, your commercial will show up while people stream their favorite movies and shows from channels and services like HGTV, Lifetime, Sling, Food Network, FOX Sports, Crackle Plus, Tubi, TLC, Comedy Central, Discovery, Philo, A&E, MLB, NBC, Travel, History, and much more!

Unlike other OTT offerings, our Premion network is TAG certified against fraudulent impressions with no open-exchange inventory.

WBKO’s Website and Apps

Another perfect way to associate your brand with our trusted news content, WBKO’s website and apps generate an average of 5 million page views per month! Run a combination of display ads, pre-roll video ads, and live stream commercials to build reach and frequency with our TV audience. This will help them better recall your brand as well as the product or service you are advertising.

The Rest of the Internet

Supplement your television commercials (broadcast and/or streaming) while building even more reach and frequency with our viewers! This will help them not forget you on their various journeys from discovery to consideration to conversion. We can place your display ads and video ads on nearly any website or app with open ad space, targeting your customers by their location and online behavior.

Some ads will follow people who have been to your website after seeing a commercial on TV (site retargeting), some ads will follow people as they research content relevant to what you offer (behavioral targeting), and other ads will follow people who physically visited a relevant location recently (geo-fencing).

We can also run targeted advertising on Facebook and Instagram (Social Advertising), YouTube, Paid Search with lead generation (through form submissions and call tracking), and much more! Schedule an appointment with a member of our team to build the best strategy!
