Metro Video Productions is a video production company in Lima, Ohio. Established in 1993 by Greg Phipps, Metro broke into the television market with its acquisition of low-power television stations WOHL-CA and WLQP-LP in Lima, Ohio. In 2004, Metro acquired three additional stations: WFND-LP in Findlay, Ohio, WLMO-LP in Lima, Ohio, and WBKA-CA in Bucyrus, Ohio.
