Well who would have thought we would see another year? With all the fuss in world politics and those who oppose its long fingers into world affairs. My hope is that we start to look more at the world outside our homes to get the real picture of what’s going on. Are your neighbours happy? Healthy? Properly nourished? It is all our responsibility to ensure our community is well. Let’s be concerned of the world, but our true happiness is right here. If we let news makers do what they want to do (make news of course), they will do it no matter what. It is what makes our global economy work. So in 2018 let’s make news they way it should be made. Locally produced and sourced. We all know someone who lives somewhere. So if we share the news lets do so via our local channels.
I hope that my work in community TV has influences some of you to actually follow it. Local sports, arts, and events are all there. I wish you to spend more time with your local media content. If you have a guest or even an idea for a show, you can be part of the solution of fake news. How about that?
Lots of love and understanding to you all in 2018!
