The Mayor of Luton, Cllr Syd Knight will officially launch Tropical FM’s internet TV on Tuesday 16 October at 83 Windsor Walk (off Hastings Street), Luton.
Tropical FM is a community station dedicated to educating and engaging with local communities. The station has been in operation for just over a year as a web based radio station and has now expanded its operation to create an internet TV channel.
The Mayor will be cutting a ribbon as part of the official proceedings to open the new TV channel, which will also include speeches by other special guests and interactive live broadcasting with pupils from Putteridge High and Lea Manor High Schools.
Mayor of Luton, Cllr Syd Knight, said: “It gives me great pleasure to officially open Tropical FM’s new internet TV. With this expansion of the station, they can reach wider audiences and provide training opportunities for young people who are interested in working in broadcast media. I wish them every success and look forward to viewing some of their community programmes in the near future.”
Dennis Riley, Managing Director, Tropical FM, said: “The aim of the station is to equip all sections of the community with resources that will deliver peace, harmony, respect, care, education and training as well as fun and entertainment. We are really excited about our latest development and currently have 28 presenters broadcasting a variety of shows and programmes and we hope that more people will come forward and join in our internet TV.
“Our future aims includes delivering a 24 hour, seven days a week schedule of live and pre-recorded programmes as well as live streaming of community events; and not only connecting with other parts of the UK but also abroad.”
Lloyd Denny, representing Luton in Harmony, said: “Tropical FM’s ethos is exactly what Luton in Harmony is all about, that is to respect each other and create harmony and peace within our communities. This is an exciting development and one which our campaign fully supports. Look out for details of up and coming Luton in Harmony events and activities on Tropical FM Internet TV.”
