In 2002 WMCN-TV became the first television station in history to relinquish its analog television license (Channel 53) to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in exchange for much broader distribution to viewers on digital television (Channel 44).

Currently WMCN-TV is distributed throughout the Philadelphia Media Market to nearly 3 million television households over-the-air, on cable and satellite. In 2012 Lenfest Broadcasting re-located WMCN-TV to Cherry Hill, NJ.

Success Stories

CAM Systems

Acquired by OpenTV in 2005

CAM Systems was a Silicon Valley company, whose software was used to manage nearly 50% of the $5 billion local cable advertising market, including 5 of the top 10 U.S. television markets. Open TV acquired CAM in September 2005.

“The sale of CAM Systems to OpenTV was a real success. It was a positive outcome for owners but equally important it was great for employees and customers who had been with us and believed in us for years.” – Chase Lenfest

StarNet

Acquired by OpenTV in 2005

StarNet provided a broad range of media-management technologies and services to the cable and broadcasting industries. In 2012 the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences honored StarNet with a technical Emmy for contributions to the local cable advertising industry.

“It was a real surprise when we were told of StarNet’s selection for an Emmy. We were so pleased since it recognized the efforts of several great engineers who worked for us over the years. ” – Chase Lenfest

Media DVX

Acquired by DG Systems

In the early 2000s, a Lenfest company acquired MediaDVX, a pioneer in the near real-time satellite delivery of advertising content to over 600 Broadcast stations throughout the US. The emerging technology of digital content delivery via satellite helped shift the Broadcast and advertising industries away from the reliance on the more expensive and delayed videotape distribution that had been in place for decades. In 2005, Lenfest sold Media DVX to DG Systems. This transaction was the catalyst that began a consolidation of the electronic ad delivery business, culminating in the acquisition of DG Systems, in 2014 by Extreme Reach for $485M.

Broadway Systems

Acquired by SintecMedia

Broadway Systems was a Chase Lenfest company whose software is used by some of the top brands in television, including CBS Sports, the Food Network, Fox News, Home & Garden TV, and BBC America, to manage all aspects of their advertising business. In October 2015 Broadway was successfully sold to global technology company Sintec Media.

“Broadway is a great story. In 2005 it was a nascent product with a couple hundred million in advertising managed. We saw an opportunity with cable networks so we brought in a new team and invested in the business. The team grew Broadway to be the leader in its market, which resulted in the company’s acquisition by Sintec Media. We viewed that as a great opportunity for employees, customers and owners alike. I am very proud of the team.” – Chase Lenfest”
