I want to take this opportunity – on behalf of Channel 9 – to wish everyone a happy New Year. After everything that has happened in 2008 we want everyone to know that our efforts to connect people to resources and provide local context to the financial crisis will continue into 2009.
It has been incredible – over the last six months – to see the impact of this work on our community. When we originally set out to work on the mortgage crisis none of us at the station were quite sure how the project was going to turn out. What I have found is that by putting the community first that we’ve been able to really make a difference.
In this spirit we created the following video, which you can also find on our air. This spot is emblematic of how the staff here at KETC feels about this project.
