Wasilla, AK/Hollywood, CA (January 29, 2015) – New Frontier Wrestling Alliance (NFWA) and United Wrestling Network (United) are pleased to announce a new television venture “Championship Wrestling from Alaska” (CWFA). Since the infancy of television, the medium has had a great relationship with pro wrestling and within the last 12 months United has been re-establishing pro wrestling on several local broadcast TV stations. “We’ve been working on making this project a reality since Mid-2014 and David Marquez of United has guided us in securing KYES-TV out of Anchorage. This is a very historic event because local pro wrestling has never been on Alaskan television and KYES-TV 5 is available throughout the whole state,” said NFWA Co-Owner Joseph Brookman. “I’m happy to be working with true professionals. Brookman and Traub possess the most awesome entrepreneurial spirt. My focus will be on television production and delivery. Also, since this is a new endeavor so our United flagship broadcast “Championship Wrestling from Hollywood” (CWFH) will act as a place holder on KYES-TV 5 until CWFA is ready for playback. NFWA is currently working on venues and dates for their first taping, said acting United President and CWFH Executive Producer David Marquez. “We were hoping to make this statement available sooner, but we weren’t sure we’d have a company after a recent fire claimed the building that housed our operation. Now a few weeks later we’ve been able to collect our thoughts and we’ve decided to march on and continue to provide the Alaskan People the best professional wrestling entertainment available,” continued Brookman. Programming on KYES-TV5 begins this Saturday January 31st at 1:00AM.

ABOUT UNITED WRESTLING NETWORK
The United Wrestling Network is a collection of promotions excited to build a new sanctioning body for pro wrestling. Our goal is to work within our local areas to create new talent, recognize a common “United” World Champion and “plus” existing local television broadcasts. Although the idea of a sanctioning body isn’t new, “United” is being executed with fresh eyes especially for the digital age. In 2014 United launched (or help launch) local broadcasts in Portland, Knoxville and Orlando. In 2015 we established a Patreon subscription video service featuring United programming as well as archived footage featuring many of today’’s top “Sports-Entertainment” network television talent.
