Gray Television's roots begin in January 1891 with the creation of the Albany Herald in Albany, Georgia. Over the next several decades, the company transformed in parallel to the ever-changing media landscape, expanding with additional newspaper acquisitions and later television stations to eventually became known as Gray Communications Systems. Between the early 1990s and today, the company was transformed through strategic acquisitions and subtle, yet critical transitions. During that period, Gray Television divested all the newspapers and television stations that it owned prior to 1993 other than WJHG. In their place, Gray Television acquired and, in some cases, built from scratch market-leading television stations focused on local communities. On January 2, 2019, Gray Television completed its acquisition of Raycom, transforming it from a small, regional broadcaster to a leading media company with nationwide scale. Gray Television currently owns and/or operates television stations and leading digital properties in 94 television markets, including the number-one ranked television station in 70 markets and the first and/or second highest ranked television station in 85 markets, based on Comscore's average all-dating ratings during calendar year 2020. Gray's television stations cover approximately 24 percent of US television households and broadcast approximately 400 separate programming streams, including nearly 150 affiliates of the CBS/NBC/ABC/FOX networks. Gray Television also owns video program production, marketing, and digital businesses including Raycom Sports, Tupelo-Raycom, and RTM Studios, the producer of PowerNation programs and content. We are continuing to expand with a strategic focus on providing value to our audiences.
