Metromedia (also often MetroMedia) was an American media company that owned radio and television stations in the United States from 1956 to 1986 and controlled Orion Pictures from 1988 to 1997. Metromedia was established in 1956 after the DuMont Television Network ceased operations and its owned-and-operated stations were spun off into a separate company. Metromedia sold its television stations to News Corporation in 1985 (which News Corp. then used to form the nucleus of the Fox Broadcasting Company), and spun off its radio stations into a separate company in 1986. Metromedia then acquired ownership stakes in various film studios, including controlling ownership in Orion. In 1997, Metromedia closed down and sold its media assets to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

  • Metromedia (aussi écrit MetroMedia) était un groupe de média qui possédait des stations de télévision et de radio américaines de 1956 à 1986. Le groupe était issu de DuMont Television Network (1946-1956), premier réseau de chaine de télévision commercial au monde, dont l'investisseur John Werner Kluge prit le contrôle. En 1986 Kluge revendit les stations de Metromedia à News Corporation et à la 20th Century Fox (toutes les deux appartenant à Rupert Murdoch).
  • Metromedia (ook wel MetroMedia) was een netwerk van televisiestations in de Verenigde Staten. Het is voornamelijk gebouwd op de restanten van het uit de jaren '50, totdat het nieuw leven ingeblazen werd met de oprichting van Fox Network in de jaren '80. Het Metromedia-merk wordt nog steeds gebruikt door Kluge, alhoewel ze niets te maken hebben met dit televisienetwerk en de meeste van zijn nieuwe activiteiten hebben geen relatie met media.
