First Of Fischer Hitting Metro TV Programming

January 5th, 2011 by jake · 9 Comments

Was trolling the Metro Gubmint website and discovered some of the first footage and talking points from the new administration in the opening of this Metro Edition program.

Take a look:

I do like his talking points. They translate well to television when Fischer himself isn’t using them.

The rest of the program is pretty good, too. It’s a look at how code enforcement officers try to deal with abandoned and neglected properties, the history of the Louisville Water Company and how a ballet was created.

    MetroTV puts a pretty good product out there. They balance the political coverage with some pretty interesting programming (at least for nerds like me). When you see what other cities are doing with their government television channels, our city’s station becomes all the more impressive.

    It’s been impressive since day one. And I don’t think that’s exaggerating, really.

    (For gubmint teevee, I mean)

    The opening song is also featured in an Hal Heiner commercial.

    Wish I could watch it, but since I don’t give in to Insight extortion, I can’t. Wonder if they post these things to YouTube for the rest of us?

    OOS: You could click the links in the story?

    Or watch the video included?

    They’re usually archived online.

    For that story, sure, but what about all the other programming that is on that channel?

    Boat load of it is online.

    Ok, but why isn’t it ALL streaming? Why can’t I watch the metro council, etc., meeting while it is going on? Best I can tell, I can’t.

    Why? We live in Kentucky.
