ION TV To Air ‘Ghost Whisperer’

ION Television has secured the broadcast syndication rights to CBS’s hit Ghost Whisperer, officials said Tuesday.

ION Media Networks entered into a content agreement with CBS Television Distribution for the show, which it debut in primetime starting in 2009.

“Heading into its fourth season on CBS, this award-winning supernatural series has the great stories and loyal audience we’re seeking in order to grow ION Television into a popular, entertainment network,” ION Media CEO Brandon Burgess said in a prepared statement. “Together with recent acquisitions like Boston Legal and Criminal Minds, Ghost Whisperer extends our reach to a broad upscale adult 25-54 demographic.”

Ghost Whisperer joins Criminal Minds and other recent additions, including BostonLegal coming to ION off-network later this year, as well as The Steve Harvey Show, Family Feud and Quantum Leap, currently airing in ION Television’s expanded entertainment schedule.
