At ion Oklahoma, we are excited to announce how as publishers of one of Oklahoma’s faster growing online digital magazine and news-entertainment websites, we are expanding our media reach and frequency.

XCITE OKLAHOMA will come to the screen during the first quarter of 2014 in a magazine TV format with highly-stylized video produced packages about the quality of life in Oklahoma today.

For example, the segments will highlight the people, places, events and lifestyle that is being enjoyed by many Oklahomans.

THE LOOK: Think Entertainment Tonight with a brain. The two hosts, Brent Skarky and Lacey Lett, are a great mix of youth and experience. The pace will be fast moving and cameras will move from location to location on set to keep the tempo rolling on.

The show will have a sense of humor without being corny. It will cater to both a young professional audience and older without being stuffy. Pre produced packages will be shot with the state of the art camera equipment and lighting to give a Cable Network quality look that won’t be found anywhere else in the state.

Fast editing will keep viewer attention and cater to a variety of viewers. Graphic packages will be simple, but classy, and serve to give the show a sharp, professional look.

A group of field producer/reporters will be employed to change the up talent voice and pace much like CBS Sunday Morning and 60 minutes seen on the national networks.

THE TARGET AUDIENCE: Male and female viewers primarily between 25-34 and secondarily 35-54. Feature stories on fashion, health, fitness, charity events and the arts are just a few of the categories in our show.

THE CONTENT: Each show will feature 4-5 segments that will highlight the diverse segments of Oklahoma living that are flourishing. Segments will focus on food, fashion, art, sports, community, travel, health, fitness, business and energy, aviation, entertainment, and people.

WEB PRESENCE: Show will air both on traditional cable TV and online at www.xciteoklahoma.tv. It will stream live but also be available on demand. Segments will be linked individually to so that views can easily share stories of interest with friends.

INTERACTIVE: Photography from society events and stories from ion Oklahoma will be shown on www.xciteoklahoma.tv so viewers can easily see their friends or themselves attending local events.

DINING – Packard’s New American Kitchen in Midtown, OKC. www.packardsokc.com
