Over the past 18 months I have used this blog to share with our community some of the many things we have to celebrate about in Meridian. From community leaders to awards received, we have had a lot to share. Today I’m excited to announce that the City is continuing this trend with a new partnership with Mountain View High School and Treasure Valley Community Television (TVCTV).
Beginning in January CableONE subscribers can turn to channel 39 every Thursday at 8:00 pm for Celebrate Meridian, a 30 minute focus on our community. For those of you who don’t have CableONE, Celebrate Meridian can be viewed on the City’s website in the video section after it airs on channel 39.
Each month Celebrate Meridian will discuss timely issues and feature guests who will give perspective and provide information about our community. January’s guests include Senator Russ Fulcher and Representative Marv Hagedorn. Both legislators share their thoughts on the upcoming 2011 legislative session and how it relates to our community. This is great information for those looking to learn more about our community. I appreciate both of my guests for taking time out of their busy schedule to share their thoughts.
In addition to guests, Celebrate Meridian will include updates about community events as well as profiles on Meridian businesses and exceptional student leaders. Each episode will conclude with an “Ask the Mayor” segment where I answer viewer questions. If you have a question you’d like to ask on Celebrate Meridian, send us an email by clicking here.
This program is produced in partnership with the students at Mountain View High School. Every month the students in media production at the school volunteer their time to help direct and produce Celebrate Meridian. The program is taped on a set inside the high school using the school’s equipment and operators. Under the direction of their instructor Michael Gartner, these students have received a variety of national awards for television production and we are excited to be working along side these future media professionals.
I hope you will tune in or log on to Celebrate Meridian each month to learn more about our community. Do you have an idea for a future show? If so I want to hear about it. Email me at MayorTammy@meridiancity.org and together we can recognize those individuals and Celebrate Meridian as the premier community to live, work and raise a family.
