OK! TV also has made moves in two markets. Tribune’s WPHL Philadelphia picked up the show, starting Jan. 6, 2014, and it will move over to CBS-owned independent KTXA Dallas this fall.

“We are thrilled with the strong momentum that is carrying us into the second year and look forward to the expanded integrated marketing opportunities that we currently offer to our partner stations,” said Hank Cohen, CEO and partner of Trifecta Entertainment & Media in a statement. “Our station partners have recognized OK! TV’s high quality production and the considerable and unique promotional value that American Media provides.”

TV also earns additional promotion via various radio, digital, brand and experiential promotional partner platforms, and plans to announce new marketing partnerships with America’s top destinations in the coming months that will also extend significant value to station partners.
