FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- After years of working together, Ride Television Network Inc., (RIDE TV) a Fort Worth based nationally distributed television network, acquires key production company, F2 Media, LLC. (F2 Media).
This acquisition of F2 Media delivers to RIDE TV an extensive network of equipment, producers, editors and directors and allows RIDE TV to be better positioned for its planned expansion of programming production in 2017. The Company plans to add a daily newscast, more live sports, more reality shows and many other series in 2017. "This acquisition made such great strategic and business sense to everyone involved, that it can only be described as a win-win," said F2 Media Co-Owner, Nathan Fletcher, who will join RIDE TV as the company's Vice President of Production. RIDE TV President, Craig Morris, is excited to welcome Fletcher to the company. "RIDE TV is lucky to have Nathan Fletcher joining the team as Vice President of Production," said Morris. "We have outsourced most of our production up to this point and it has worked great for us, but the timing was right to be able to bring Nathan on board and acquire a great production company in the process." Up until this point, RIDE TV has relied on outside production companies to film, edit and deliver content. Through this acquisition RIDE TV will own a substantial amount of equipment and assets, and will gain Fletcher's expertise in television production. "I've been working with the RIDE team for years developing and producing content for RIDE before it was even launched. I'm very excited about RIDE's future and am grateful and thrilled to have a role in the leadership team," said Fletcher.
