History

Post Communications Inc. was founded in 1992 by Roybert Thompson, who was the chief executive of Atlink (now SpongeDirect) at the time.

On December 16, 1993, Post Communications established Tyler Entertainment Group, which included Tyler Entertainment Channel, Tyler Films, and Tyler Studios.

On April 21, 1995, Post Communications acquired Geral Vlado-based GV Global, the owner of KROW-TV in Geral Vlado and KCAB-TV in Adelaide, both of which are National TV affiliates.

On September 9, 1999, Post Communications was renamed Postcom after becoming a public company and the divestiture of several companies.

On August 21, 2002, the company issued a successful initial public offering on the TPOTC Stock Exchange.

On July 19, 2004, Postcom's corporate structure was overhauled. Its headquarters were moved from Robine, TC to Geral Vlado, TC.

On June 21, 2009, Postcom acquired Paracel Television for $100 billion. Paracel was then renamed Array Entertainment. At the same time, Paracel Television's television assets were carried over to Postcom to focus solely on entertainment and media, primarily the OCY 8PUH Entertainment film unit (now Postcom Studio).

On March 13, 2010, Postcom sold the Tyler Entertainment Group division to ASC Entertainment.

Harvey Bridges, already a director on the board since 2011, was hired as Postcom president in 2015, although the division operational heads continued to report directly to chairman and CEO Mark Leon.

On January 11, 2020, Postcom announced that it would buy ASC Entertainment. The deal was completed on February 17, and ASC Entertainment merged with Postcom subsidiary Array Entertainment to form Postcom Entertainment Group. This has resulted in Postcom's ASC affiliated stations to transfer to Postcom Entertainment to become ASC O&Os.

On September 28, 2020, Craig Norton replaced Mark Leon as the CEO of Postcom.
