Raycom Media, Inc. was created in 1996 with the purchase of 12 television stations, two radio stations, and a sports marketing, production, events management, and distribution company. Shortly after this first acquisition, Raycom Media quickly acquired two other companies and began an unheard of growth in the media business.
Raycom Media now stretches from Syracuse, New York to Honolulu, Hawaii with businesses in 21 states and over 2,800 employees. The television stations cover 10.2% of the U.S. television households. Raycom Media businesses go beyond just broadcasting and include event management, distribution of syndicated television programming, information systems support, and design and hosting of Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail website.
The company, through Raycom Sports, owns and operates the Continental Tire Bowl in Charlotte and two LPGA golf tournaments, as well as produces pre-season NFL football games for non-owned stations. In a partnership, it owns all television and marketing rights to the Atlantic Coast Conference basketball.
With a strong belief in community, Raycom Media television stations take editorial positions on key community issues. It is the vision of the company that it be involved in the communities its broadcast properties serve. By editorializing on local issues and seeking out divergent points of view, Raycom Media television stations create an atmosphere of community dialog.
Raycom Media is headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama.
