This year's MediaWorks program ends during Knoxville's annual celebration of innovation and startup culture, Sept. 19-22, 2016.
Previous participants in the MediaWorks accelerator include Knoxville-based SpareTime Entertainment, producer of the music video sensation Baracksdubs, which to date has garnered more than 1.3 million YouTube subscribers and nearly 300 million views. [###]
