Guam – The Governor’s office this afternoon announced further details of  the planned Government Channel,  following up on the announcement of the new channel by the Governor in his Weekly Address.

In a release, Adelup said that the new channel will be a public access channel offered by the island’s 2 cable providers.   It will launch on January 1, 2014 on GTA TeleGuam Channel 16 and Docomo Channel 116.

Beyond public notices of GovGuam events and Board meetings, the Governor’s Office hopes it will be an opportunity to for members of the general public to submit “family-oriented content to showcase the professional and amateur talent on Guam.”

Governor Calvo is quoted in the release as saying “this is our chance to showcase and foster local talent in our Guamanian Family … This is your chance to get your work shown to the public.”

If you have more questions you can call PBS Guam (671) 734-5483 or Phillip Leon Guerrero of the Governor’s Office at (671) 475-9213.

“This is more than an opportunity to disseminate government information – this is our chance to showcase and foster local talent in our Guamanian Family. We didn’t just want to put up government notices. We wanted to include the work of proud parents, hikers and explorers of our island, and up-and-coming filmmakers and musicians. This is your chance to get your work shown to the public. We want to share the story of the people with everyone.” – Governor Eddie Baza Calvo

The Government Channel will launch on January 1, 2014 on GTA TeleGuam Channel 16 and Docomo Channel 116.

Content for the Channel                                                                                                     
The Government Channel is calling on the public to share and preserve the Guamanian story. We’re looking for family-oriented content to showcase the professional and amateur talent on Guam. Have you taken some amateur video of your hike at Sigua Falls? Do you have a school video project you’re proud of and want to share? How about your child’s performance at their Christmas concert? Did you take video of your child’s championship soccer game? We also want to hear some original music. We want it all, and we want to share it with our island family.
