Community TV. Very Underappreciated and Pretty Amazing: Rogers TV Cable 10/63.

Have you ever dreamed of wanting to be a star!  Maybe you wanted to become a news reporter, weather person, have your own talk show, take your blogging to a new medium or learn to produce television shows.  Are you waiting to be discovered?  Well wait no more.  Take the bull by the horns and be in charge of your own destiny.

In the Greater Toronto Area, we are so very fortunate to have a mainly volunteer community television station, Rogers TV Cable 10/63 (Channel 10 in Toronto and channel 63 in Scarborough) where your volunteering not only serves your community – by informing and entertaining them – but you also receive hands-on training in many aspects of television production. What you gain from this experience is entirely up to you.

Whether you’re looking to gain practical experience needed for further education or a career change, or to simply take part in an exciting volunteer environment, Rogers TV will provide you with a solid experience in television broadcasting. You will learn skills that will help you increase your self-confidence, your personal presentation profile and your communication abilities.

Most of the programs you will find on Rogers TV are about you, your family, your friends and your neighbours.  It is community TV.

In some aspects, Rogers TV acts like a feeder station, where many in the television industry learn the ropes and get their feet wet before they move on to bigger and better things.

Ready to volunteer?  Here is the volunteer application form: http://www.rogerstv.com/page.aspx?lid=202&rid=16

Want to appear on a current show?  Or maybe you want to pitch your own community show?  You can apply to do all that right here; http://www.rogerstv.com/page.aspx?lid=11&rid=16

In case at this point you are raising an eyebrow wondering why Rogers would do this, well consider that Rogers Communications is Canada’s largest provider of wireless voice and data communications services and one of Canada’s leading providers of cable television, high-speed Internet and telephony services. Rogers TV is only available to Rogers’ customers, including the company’s 2.3 million cable customers in Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.

Since 1969, local programming matters…

A huge thank you to Tim Peters @ Rogers for the opportunity to chat with him, ask a lot of questions, and learn about that Rogers TV can do you me and for you.

Please take a moment to follow Rogers Help on Twitter @rogershelp on twitter where you can ask questions and receive prompt responses and @RogersTVToronto for the local folk, like myself.

So who wants to appear on my talk show?  😉

    I would love to do a show someday! No idea what it’d be about but it still sounds cool, lol. Good luck with it and let me know if you get anything off the ground!

    I love Rogers here in Ottawa and never really thought about volunteering. I’m trying to put some videos together but with no video skills to speak of, volunteering might just be the thing I need to push me along!

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. I feel the same way! At first I was thinking it would be nice to get involved in some way – possibly a show, but then after speaking with Tim there, and going through their website, I suddenly feel like there are a whole bunch of cool things I could do.
