Keeping regional communities informed
Vision TV is a well established and reputable video production and media broadcast enterprise based in the Blue Mountains. We believe in accessible news, information sharing and promotional opportunities in regional communities.
In mid-March, the regional media environment changed virtually overnight due to the COVID-19 global crisis. Regional news outlets have assigned journalists to Sydney and Canberra to cover the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the ever-changing response to it. This follows the progressive budget cuts to regional media outlets in recent years.
This presents a challenge for regional councils, community organisations and businesses to get their message out to their communities, clients and customers. This challenge comes at a time when CEOs,
Residents are in near lockdown, staff have been stood down, and business as usual is suspended. Yet the wheels of local and state government keep turning, bushfire and drought recovery efforts continue, and some community and business sector activities continue. This means the need for information and public participation in local decision making is as critical as ever.
We can work with you to create a weekly or fortnightly program of stories to keep your profile active and your community or customer base engaged. Ideas include, but are not limited to:
messaging about changes to service delivery, stock and supply chain management, as well
as communicating with staff, due to the impacts of COVID-19, all with a limited budget.
Vision TV can help your organisation keep your community, clients and customers informed
of these changes, as well as business as usual activities, with greater reach and impact, in
the absence of regional news crews and face to face engagement activities. Accessible
communication, staying connected and building community are critical elements to good
leadership, especially in times of uncertainty, disruption and change.
Regional stories on impacts, initiative and adaptation in a time of Covid-19.
Life Goes On – local government and community organisations are still operational
and are conducting many business-as-usual services and opportunities for
community participation in local decision making.
