The city of Eagan, Minn.’s community access television studio, E-TV, has a new home on the Eagan campus of Thomson Reuters.
When word spread that the city needed a new location for its community access television studio, Thomson Reuters opened its doors – making this a first-of-its-kind public/corporate partnership in the country.
A grand opening launch took place on Feb. 25 featuring a live broadcast with Peter Warwick, president and CEO of the legal businesses of Thomson Reuters and Eagan Mayor Mike Maguire. (Watch a video interview with Maguire)
Warwick believes this partnership promises benefits both to Thomson Reuters and the city of Eagan. (Watch a video interview with Warwick)
Tom Garrison, communications director for the city, was quick to recognize the potential of this unique partnership. “We’ll be able to provide the professional, reliable public access television coverage the community has come to depend on while working collaboratively with Thomson Reuters.” (Watch a video interview with Garrison)
In addition to giving community members access to world-class video and editing equipment, Eagan Community Television develops a broad range of programming including community, government and school news across six channels. The E-TV studio is now open to the public.
