City Showcases Tacoma’s News on 'Tacoma Report'

 

The City of Tacoma’s Media and Communications Office has launched its first edition of “Tacoma Report,” a contemporary program featuring news and human interest stories about City services and programs and Tacoma’s nonprofits and special events. The show airs on the City’s municipal television station TV Tacoma.

“Tacoma needed its very own local news show,” said City of Tacoma Media and Communications Manager Gwen Schuler. “’Tacoma Report’ is a fast-paced look at the news that affects the lives of those in our community.”

The first show will air now through the end of the month when it will be replaced with the March edition.

The show is scheduled to air tomorrow at 12:30 a.m., 3:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on channel 12 for Click! and Comcast customers in the city limits and on channel 21 for Click! and Comcast customers in Pierce County. University Place residents who are Comcast customers do not receive TV Tacoma broadcasting.

“The first two shows will each air for a month and our goal is to begin producing a new edition every-other-week this spring," said Schuler. “Tacoma has an array of interesting stories and news that we want to highlight in a timely and relevant manner.”

“Tacoma Report” is anchored by Anita Gallagher, a Tacoma native and City employee.

“I grew up here and am very proud of that fact,” Gallagher said. “There are so many exciting things going on in Tacoma these days—arts, culture, food, and I want to be a part of that.”

“There are a lot of Tacomans who don’t know about all of the services and programs the City and our partner organizations have to offer, and I’m hoping people will learn about these services from our show and take advantage of them,” said Gallagher. “I think of ‘Tacoma Report’ as an information hub about services as well as current events.”
