Livingston, TX, November 14, 2019 —Livingston Communications (“LivCom”), a USConnect Company, announced today that it has launched a new local channel, LivCom Local Channel 71, which is available on LivCom’s Cable TV offering, Skitter TV. LivCom Local provides a variety of community programming to Livingston residents and allows the Livingston High School AV students to broadcast their own productions. Providing local content that is relevant to the community furthers LivCom’s initiative to invest in the future of Livingston.
“We are excited to bring the Livingston community its own local channel and give the Livingston High School AV students real-world experience and delight in turning their hard work into programming that can be viewed by their peers, family and the Livingston community,” commented Deborah Rand, CEO of USConnect.
“To promote the use of LivCom Local with Livingston High School, we hosted a group of AV students at our Business Office to showcase the channel. Students were able to view content first hand and gather inspiration for their future broadcasts to ensure viewers are receiving fresh content,” stated Stephanie Miller, Marketing and Quality Assurance Administrator for LivCom and USConnect.
“We are anxious to see what the students can do with the content and production enhancements of LivCom Local. You’ll definitely want to tune-in as you might see a familiar face on TV,” commented Jeff Wolf, LivCom General Manager.
