When disaster strikes, local television matters. But does anyone actually care about small-town daily news coverage anymore? CHEK in Victoria is the last independent, employee-owned television station in North America, and Rob Germain is their news director. He defends the merits of local television.
Recorded live in Victoria in partnership with CFUV 101.9 FM and Social Media Camp 2016.
