Jamie Kellner is a founder of ACME and has served as our Chairman of the Board since 1997. Mr. Kellner was also a founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The WB Television Network from 1993 to 2004. Additionally, from March 2001 through March 2003, Mr. Kellner served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AOL Time Warner's Television Networks division.

Mr. Kellner and our other co-founders, Doug Gealy (President & CEO) and Tom Allen (our former Executive Vice President & CFO, and now a consultant to the Company), formed our company in early 1997 to capitalize on the opportunity to affiliate with emerging broadcast television networks. Our goal is to continue to develop our stations in their markets and to grow shareholder value in the process.
