Atlanta Television Channel Launched by Ray McBerry Enterprises, Inc.
(Atlanta – January 25, 2012) After working in the radio and television industry for more than a decade, former Republican gubernatorial candidate Ray McBerry announced today that his company, Ray McBerry Enterprises, Inc. will be launching a new local television channel in the Atlanta market on March 5, 2012.
KBN Television will broadcast on the Charter Cable Network, one of the two largest cable providers in Georgia. The channel will initially broadcast as KBN – TV22 in Henry County and surrounding areas south of Atlanta, reaching approximately a quarter million viewers. Plans have already been made to expand the coverage area to include more of the Atlanta market and rural Georgia within the next two years.
The goal of KBN Television is to provide quality, family-friendly programming to the fastest growing region in the southeast. The anchor program of KBN Television will be the "Georgia First" show hosted by Ray McBerry. "Georgia First" will be a political and current issues "hot topic" show featuring guests and topics in the news but always from a traditional, constitutional viewpoint. Ray’s former campaign for governor featured the theme "Georgia First," and the concept of state sovereignty and local self-government will continue to be the theme of this new show. Having hosted another weekly political talk show on another channel for the last five years, Ray brings a great deal of experience and information to the new show, which promises an interesting format for viewers.
Ray McBerry previously served as the sales manager and, later, as an independent contractor for SBN Television, the former local television channel originating in Henry County. When SBN Television ceased broadcasting on Charter in November of 2011, a number of friends and supporters suggested that this was the perfect time for Ray to launch his own local television channel – hence the name Kairos Broadcasting Network. "Kairos" is a Greek word which means the precisely best moment in time to do something; in Christian terms it also represents the fact that Christ came into the world at precisely the right time to fulfill His promise to redeem mankind. "Kairos" embodies the business, political, philosophical, and Christian views of president and founder Ray McBerry.
