Subject: Access to the Candidates program on Channel 2
We sent out letters to local candidates running for public office in the Primary Election to participate in our Spring Access to the Candidates program here at Channel 2. We have had almost 20 responses to date, but wanted to extend out the invitation again to anyone running as we still have a few spots left. The text listed below gives all of the pertinent information but please feel free to call me with any questions.
Community Access Television is offering candidates for public office the opportunity to appear on our spring “Access to the Candidates” program. Voters in the City of Erie can watch your message and learn more about your candidacy in a 15 minute segment on Time Warner Cable/Spectrum Channel 2, or on our website at www.catverie.org. These spring “ATC” segments will be recorded in full 1080 High Definition resolution.
Candidates who wish to take advantage of this opportunity should contact us by Tuesday, April 18th at 814.454.2226 to schedule an appointment. Candidates must be available to record their segment at our studio on one of the following dates:
• Tuesday, April 18th from 2:00pm – 4:00pm
• Wednesday, April 19th from 10:00am – Noon or 2:00pm – 4:00pm
• Thursday, April 20th from 10:00am – 1:00pm
• Friday, April 21st from 11:00am – 1:00pm
*You may directly address your audience alone in front of the camera, or you can choose to bring in an interviewer with whom to conduct a dialogue.
The compiled programs that Community Access Television produces, “Access to the Candidates”, will be aired several times per week between April 25th and the Primary Election day on May 16th. The specific air times will be announced on the CATV website, community bulletin board, and publicized in the Erie Times-News.
There will be a one-time cost to your campaign which will cover HD filming, post-production, and airing of your segment; as well as provide you a Blu-Ray or DVD, and digital file copy for your personal use (website, social media, YouTube, etc.). If you pre-register and pay ahead of time, the cost is only $50.00, or you may pay on the day of your production shoot at a cost of $65.00. Payment must be made in full prior to filming.
We look forward to working with you and invite you to call us at 814.454.2226 or email us at email@example.com if you have any questions or to schedule your appointment.
