They join the African-American-targeted cable network’s early advertisers since its Jan. 19 launch: Dell Computer Corp., Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc., Wal-Mart Stores Inc., GEICO, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. (marketing upcoming movie Barbershop 2) and Music One Radio Inc.

"TV One will be a powerful tool for marketers seeking to reach the African-American consumer," executive vice president of advertising sales and marketing Keith Bowen said in a release.
