This non-profit network has shown phenomenal growth in the last five years. The Word Network is now available to over 78,000,000 homes weekly, in not only the US but the UK, the Caribbean and Africa. Lewis Gibbs is the President of “The Word Network”. The network was founded by Franklin Z. Adell from Detroit, Michigan.
