Lexington Broadcast Services Company


Lexington Broadcast Services Company

Lexington Broadcast Services Company was a television production and syndication company founded in 1976 by advertising pioneer Henry Siegel. Advertising Age magazine wrote of Siegel as "the man who built Lexington Broadcast Services into the nation's largest barter syndicator, and thus defined that segment of the TV ad business." ["50 Who Made A Difference", page 45. "Advertising Age", Spring 1995.] It was renamed LBS Communications, Inc. in 1984.

The company was known for distributing programs from DIC Entertainment, Screen Gems and Columbia Pictures Television, by way of its Colex Enterprises joint venture with Columbia, in addition to the 1991 syndicated re-launch of "Baywatch".

However, in 1992, LBS Communications filed for bankruptcy, and was forced to sell nearly all of its assets to the Scotti Brothers' All American Television. All American would later be sold to Pearson Television, which was in turn bought by FremantleMedia North America.
