A new broadcast network is about to take over your TV  they hope. Bounce TV is the name of the new 24-hour network co-founded by the son of late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It’s set to debut at noon today in several markets around the country with an airing of the 1978 movie musical “The Wiz,” starring Michael Jackson and Diana Ross. Geared toward African-American audiences, Bounce aims to attract viewers with a mixed lineup of programs, old and new, inspirational stories, sports, documentaries and faith-based programs. Sidney Poitier’s “A Raisin In The Sun” and Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing” are also among the films scheduled to air during Bounce TV’s debut week. The network aims to capture a more mature demographic than the age group that tends to gravitate toward Black Entertainment Television which is now in its 31st year.
