One of our strongest themes at Vantage Credit Union is our motto: “enhancing your life, strengthening our community.” This week’s Local Flavor STL blog highlights STL TV – a local television station committed to broadcasting local news, events and real life stories of everyday life in St. Louis.
STL TV provides government related informational television programs to the residents of the City of St. Louis. The channel, which is available on cable channel 992 & 108.10 and U-Verse channel 99, serves as a vital link in making local government more accessible to the community via cable television. Many of the shows can also be found on their YouTube channel.
STL TV is operated 24-hours daily and has logged thousands of production hours in pursuit of its mission to inform, educate and promote St. Louis City government operations.
STL TV has served as a vehicle to promote city neighborhoods and has collaborated with many civic organizations. This has resulted in a diversity of programs not found on any other local station. THEY work with all city departments and serve as a link in the government information chain. City departments utilize STL TV to promote such matters as city employment opportunities, supply bid requests, public hearings, and citizen alerts. Moreover, they stand ready as a resource in a declared emergency or disaster. STL TV airs programming twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
Some of their television programs include: It’s Your Money, The JJK Effect (featuring 3-time Olympic Gold medalist Jackie Joyner Kersey), STL Live (hosted by fashion blogger and media personality Christia DeShields) and more!
I love watching their shows online and learning about the various organizations, events and interesting people in our community. You guys should definitely check them out!
