Catch Us on the Resort Channel
Beginning Memorial Day weekend, Rehoboth visitors and the rest of us who check out Comcast’s Resort Video Channel 8 are going to get an eyeful of CAMP Rehoboth.
Comcast is set to broadcast a five-minute promo piece on CAMP Rehoboth, including interviews, slides, great music and how to participate in all that CAMP has to offer. It will run nine times a day, every day, on Channel 8, as part of Comcast’s Discover Delaware feature programming.
For the past four years, Comcast Spotlight (the advertising division of Comcast) has been looking for a way to create a show locally involving CAMP Rehoboth and the LGBT community. Rather than wait for underwriting and sponsorship of the show, Comcast Spotlight has chosen to donate, for the time being, the air time and production.
The five minute CAMP show was put together as a collaborative effort between CAMP member and Comcast Spotlight rep Kathy Davison and CAMP Board member Fay Jacobs (both on CAMP’s Communication Committee). The slides and interviews in the promo piece were put together over the last month to highlight what CAMP Rehoboth does in, around, and for the community.
The video piece shows off the community center, gives viewers an idea about CAMP’s programs and events, highlights CAMP activities and makes a pitch for membership.
There will be two or three versions of the five minute show, each with different interviews. The first version will begin on Channel 8 Memorial Day weekend with subsequent versions, featuring additional interviews, added later.
“Working with Fay Jacobs on the project was terrific,” said Davison, “since she has done this kind of production before in her career. Here at Spotlight we look forward to continuing to work to add to the CAMP portion of the show and I know that Fay has many creative ideas in store for us.”
If our local businesses want to know more about how to get involved with the show, they are invited to call Kathy Davison at 302-581-6012.
