RIVER CITY WRESTLING CLEARS SAN ANTONIO TV
San Antonio, TX (January 15, 2014) – Today, we're happy to announce that United Wrestling Network (United) participating promotion River City Wrestling (RCW) has secured a time slot with Gannett Broadcasting's bilingual station Estrella TV. "RCW Stars of Wrestling/Las Estrellas de la Lucha Libre" will air Sunday mornings at 8:30 starting on February 16th.
"Today is a special day for our company. A lot has been achieved in the last 12 years. Our fans are the heart and soul of RCW and they are the reason we've agreed to work with "United" on creating a local television show. This breakthrough program will be special for both American and Hispanics audiences as it will be bilingual, offering segments both in English and Spanish. With San Antonio's proud Hispanic culture, this will enable RCW to reach larger audiences," said Brandon Oliver, Managing Member of River City Wrestling, LLC.
"When we announced the "United" concept late last year I was overwhelmed with requests from promotions worldwide. Once I explained the criteria for membership, I never heard back from those companies. Television is the only thing that will make "United" work properly and Brandon Oliver has been working his tail off in striking a deal with a local station. His bilingual telecast will no doubt be a success and a model for other pro wrestling promotions interested in broadcast television," states David Marquez of the United Wrestling Network.
"Stars of Wrestling' will also allow viewers more access to RCW including never-before-seen footage and exclusive content. The broadcast will also showcase the RCW Gym Wrestling School, a training facility based here in San Antonio. Again, we would like to thank the fans for supporting us for more than 12 years. Their incredible enthusiasm enabled RCW in striving to put out the best product possible. We would also like to thank our incredible community partners, the various non-profit organizations that RCW works with in strengthening our community," continued Oliver.
