Youth involved with CTB capitalize and harness social media platforms to gain CTB television station momentum to live stream on YouTube, Face Book, Twitter and in the near future Smart TV plus Android and Apple apps.
Our model is to engage the community as CTB storytellers. Trained CTB youth and teams film, edit and broadcast their own news and current affairs, make documentaries, educational programmes, learn sports coverage and profile lifestyle programmes. Community Television Broadcasting Inc. will play community television unique content for the streaming programme schedule. Federal government content grants are accessible for us.
Community media is the means of expression for the community
and enables members of the community to have access to local information and education when they want access. We are media in which the community participates, as planners, producers, performers. Now that the restrictions have largely lifted, we can produce more effectively to resume building community collaborations.
