Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) September 15, 2009
http://www.YourCity.MD, CEO, Joe Benza, Jr., announced a two year partnership with Lexington, Kentucky's #1 news station, WLEX 18 TV, the flagship Cordillera station.
This agreement allows WLEX 18 TV to utilize the YourCity.MD geo-targeted, city healthcare platform Lexington.MD the city's #1 healthcare portal, potentially, one of the most valuable and easy to remember domains on the Internet. The agreement gives WLEX 18 TV immediate access into the desired health medical business sector. The YourCity.MD platform offers the station the opportunity to concentrate on local health resources, providers and facilities with the inclusion of formalized patient word of mouth testimonials and ratings. This hyper local focus provides a unique opportunity to generate significant non-traditional health revenues. In addition to the WLEX 18 TV partnership in Lexington, the agreement allows all other Cordillera stations, the first option to partner with YourCity.MD in their respective markets by year's end.
CEO, Joe Benza stated "I applaud General Manager, Pat Dalbey's forward thinking and believe in a very short period of time his sales force will dominate the Lexington healthcare advertising market. Once WLEX 18 TV promotes and directs the Lexington viewers to our comprehensive http://www.Lexington.MD healthcare website, the station will be in a position to become the leader in healthcare information, thus greatly enhancing their ability to increase market share. I believe Pat's business model is the best healthcare model, I have seen in 5 years. Medical and healthcare advertisers will gravitate to this intuitive city health site as WLEX 18 creates a new city home for doctors and patients to congregate."

These .MD city sites give the TV station, instant third party credibility, the best city domain name for healthcare and the chance to offer an important opportunity to health care related advertisers, while also providing a tremendous healthcare resource to the community. Providing the best local news and information about the Bluegrass Region is our business and our partnership with .MD is an important extension of that service that will truly benefit this community."

John said, "I reviewed the YourCity.MD business model and see tremendous upside for both content and revenue opportunities for the local station partner. Based on my understanding of how Pat and his team are refocusing their sales staff and direction, the WLEX 18 TV sales model and affiliation with YourCity.MD will catapult WLEX into the #1 medical/healthcare revenue position, in Lexington."
