Save the Date: ION Media Networks to Host Upfront Presentation May 1

Programming Showcase to be Held at the New York Public Library

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- ION Media Networks, Inc. announced today that it will display its new programming and marketing initiatives for the 2008-2009 television season at its second annual Upfront sales presentation. The event, aimed at the advertising community, will be held on the evening of Thursday, May 1st at the New York Public Library.

"We're looking forward to telling the story of ION Television to the advertising community," said Stephen Appel, President, Sales and Marketing. "Our new Fall lineup is going to be a place we think advertisers will want to have their products showcased."

ION Television recently announced it will be adding the hit series "Boston Legal" to its Fall 2008 primetime lineup. Also coming to the network will be the timeless comedic drama, "M*A*S*H."

ION Television already has made some significant additions to its primetime schedule in 2008, launching the beloved sitcom, "The Drew Carey Show," on New Year's Day, and debuting the multi-generational TV staple, "Baywatch," earlier this week. Original movies from RHI Entertainment, such as "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and "Aces ´┐ŻN Eights," set to premiere March 15th, also have contributed to the increased excitement at the network in the first quarter of the year.
