BELLEVILLE – TVCOGECO in Belleville is teaming up with Loyalist College journalism and TV New Media students to produce a live television show on election night.

The show will provide live and up-to-the minute results, interviews and expert analysis from the municipalities of Belleville, Prince Edward County and Quinte West.

Scott Meyers, senior manager of programming and community relations at TVCOGECO, said that this show is a first for the Bellville station and a great opportunity for students.

“Local television is truly about partnerships and opportunities, and approaching the Loyalist Journalism and TV New Media students to provide the hosting and reporting, I felt was a natural partnership and a great opportunity for the students,” he said.
