WTLW-TV Modernizes With Myers

WESTERN OHIO’S CHRISTIAN TELEVISION INSTALLS PROTRACK TV FOR SALES & TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT

“We are extremely pleased to welcome WTLW and WOSN to our growing client family,” said Crist Myers, company CEO and president. “ProTrack’s features and functionality are well suited to manage broadcast content and business workflows, whether for a public, religious or commercial station.”

Myers’ highly regarded flagship suite, ProTrack, is available in both radio and television editions.
