Message From CEO Stan E. Hubbard

Stan E. Hubbard

Operating an independent business in any field is as challenging as it is rewarding, and the television industry is no different. REELZ is proudly independent, which makes the network very rare in an entertainment and broadcast industry dominated by conglomerates. We’re just a single network looking for characters and stories that sometimes the big network groups cannot or will not touch. Independent TV networks, like any independent businesses, need your support as media groups grow even larger and control what we see. By standing up for independents, you support diversity of voice and creative expression.

At our inception in 2006, we made a deep-seated commitment to our viewers and business partners. We treat all relationships as personal and sacred, and that can only come from being an independent, family-owned business. We ask in return that you too think independently and support independent television.
