What is Different About Syndicated Programming?

UNDERSTANDING HOW SYNDICATION WORKS:

More than 90% of the shows airing on PBS are submitted by an approved production company. They are placed under strict PBS review and if criteria is met and highest standards are achieved, these programs are syndicated by PBS. You will find a listing and time slot in your local “TV Guide” if American Health Journal is syndicated in that city.

EXAMPLE:

Similar to all independent PBS stations nationwide, the independent PBS Station in Kansas City determines the days and times they want to run The American Health Journal. They publish their schedule in their local TV Guide – The Kansas City Star.

The same thing happens in more than 400 cities across America. We are then, and only then, notified of the station, city, time and date after the TRAC® report is posted from the satellite and is sent to us. Syndicated shows run continuously at many different times during the day (4 times a day average). They constantly appear in more than 400 US cities. That is the power of the reach and frequency of public broadcasting!

COMPARE TO THE NETWORK SHOWS:

A broadcast network show (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX) airs at a specific time every week, In a full season, it airs only 52 times a year (1/3 are reruns). That means your segment appears once or twice over the course of a year. In sharp contrast, a syndicated show like The American Health Journal will air an average of 3 times a day totaling over 1,095 airings.
