John Stanhope and TransACT are trying to steal RiotACTs thunder by starting up their own totally local television channel focusing entirely on local content and issues to be broadcast on TransACT. So get out those digital video cameras boys and girls becuase I’m sure they’ll be looking for content to fill up all that time.
The Chief Ministers Media Release is below (I’m sure they’ll get it up on the web sometime this year)
CHIEF MINISTER TO LAUNCH NEW CANBERRA TELEVISION CHANNEL, CHANNELVISION
Chief Minister Jon Stanhope will on Thursday launch Channelvision, a new Canberra television channel that will be broadcast on TransACTâ€™s Channel One.
Channelvision is believed to be a first for any city in Australia â€“ a totally local television channel focusing entirely on local content and issues and employing only local staff and presenters.
When: 10:30am Thursday 1 September
Where: Canberra Business Promotion Centre
Regatta Point, Commonwealth Park, Acton
Anyone going to the launch we’d love to hear about it.
