MHz Worldview Expands to Affiliates in Michigan and Utah -- Indicates Relevance of World Awareness in America

WASHINGTON, DC and FLINT-SAGINAW, MI and SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - February 21, 2008) - With its fresh, relevant presentation of international content, MHz Worldview continues to expand national reach with the addition of two more affiliates: WDCQ in Flint-Saginaw, MI and UEN-TV in Salt Lake City, UT.

The addition of WDCQ and UEN-TV to the existing affiliate line-up proves the mission of global understanding and world awareness is relevant and embraced throughout the nation, in both rural and urban America.

Known for its 'Programming for Globally-Minded People,' MHz Worldview serves as a liaison in bringing programs and insight from around the world to American audiences.

WDCQ, also known as Delta College Public Broadcasting, opened 2008 as a MHz Worldview affiliate, bringing international content to mid-Michigan's over 480,000 households.

With a mission intent on helping its community see itself through experiences in culture and diversity, WDCQ feels MHz Worldview programming is a good fit. "Our stations' ideal of free and open access to knowledge befits the MHz Worldview international programming dynamic," said Barry Baker, WDCQ General Manager.

Frederick Thomas, Chief Executive / GM of MHz Worldview, agrees, "As part of the world community, American viewers are becoming increasingly globally-minded. MHz Worldview, with its international content from the source, allows viewers to fully immerse in world understanding."
