STV announced today that there will be a new addition to Scottish television, that's right, STV Glasgow. The new channel is to debut on the 2nd of June, 2014. This is a very exciting time for the people of Glasgow, they will have a channel with a strong sense of community, a channel made by the people of Glasgow, for the people of Glasgow. Don't worry if you're not in the city though, you'll still be able to tune in from all around Scotland.
The channel is in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University to help get more young students involved in live TV, especially those studying relevant degrees such as journalism. It is certainly an exciting time to be a student at Caley!
The channel will be on air from midday to midnight and will involve "an entertaining mix of news and features with a live and interactive format that will encourage viewers to get involved." according to STV. Not to mention a new show will accompany the channel's welcome to television, this is The Riverside Show hosted by Jennifer Reoch (Former Miss Scotland) and Clyde 1's Radio DJ David Farrell. They hope to get Glasgow's public interacting with the show and for it to hopefully catch on as a classic, popular show around the whole of Scotland.
