TV Rotorua ceased broadcasting at midnight April 30th due to ongoing challenges in raising sufficient local commercial funding.
Trustee and CEO Daryl Anderson says viewer support for Rotorua’s community TV channel which began in 2007 has been fantastic, but technology and viewing habits are continually changing for many sectors of the community. There is no doubt that an important continued need exists for the production and distribution of local content to ensure we build and support our local identity. He says there has been an expression of interest for some continued local production.
All staff have been offered support in finding future work opportunities within the community.
Management and staff are proud to have provided this service over the years and take this opportunity to thank all supporters, viewers and various funders in the community that have been part of this journey.
