Access Communications receives five Tuned-in Canada awards
Thursday, June 23, 2016
Access Communications is pleased to announce we were nominated and awarded in five community categories during this year’s Tuned-in Canada campaign from the Canadian Cable Systems Alliance (CCSA).
“Access is connecting people across Saskatchewan every day with dynamic local programming on Access7,” says Jim Deane, CEO, Access Communications Co-operative.
Hundreds of volunteers across the province donate their time to our registered Access Communications Children’s Fund and Access7 community channels; including talented community producers across the province. It truly is a labour of love and Access is honoured to be able to provide a place for communities to connect.
The awarded categories are:
• Best public service/community building effort: NEOSS Women’s Shelter donation
• Best community channel programming – news: RezX
• Best community channel programming – sports: Hockey Night in Saskatchewan
• Best community channel programming – entertainment: Heritage in Scarlet
• Best on-camera community channel personality: Lisa Peters
More than 28,000 votes from across the country were cast in support of local cable companies, their content, and the personalities that make them shine.
We received more than 180 nominations from our members and their subscribers across the country, and it’s so rewarding to see that level of engagement,” says Jenny Bosien, CCSA Acting President and CEO. “But for us, the best thing is the exposure each and every one of our nominees received over these past few months. Tuned-in Canada has really become a platform for celebrating their achievements.”
The CCSA is an advocacy and buying group operated by members for members, connecting independent cable operators and their subscribers with cost-effective programming and equipment – while ensuring their messages reach regulators and government.
Access Communications is a 100% Saskatchewan-owned non-profit co-operative that is committed to providing exceptional communications and entertainment service. Access is dedicated to the communities it lives in, reinvesting 100% of its earnings into the 230 communities it serves.
