Residents and others now have a new way to stay informed about the latest happenings with the launch of "Lake to Lake," a monthly news show about Bellevue.
"Lake to Lake," which utilizes a news-anchor format similar to nightly newscasts on network television, is a roundup of web-based video segments that accompany city news releases, combined with news about the City Council and longer feature stories. Future plans include interviews with city newsmakers, profiles and segments that focus on local history.
The current "Lake to Lake" episode airs on Bellevue Television (BTV, Channel 21) several times a week, and can be viewed online any time from the Bellevue Television web page. Both the March episode and the April episode are also posted on the city's YouTube site, which contains more than 100 videos about Bellevue.
BTV provides important information to the public about local government, including live and recorded broadcasts of the City Council, along with a wide range of other programming. Bellevue Television is operated through a partnership between the city and Bellevue College.
Produced by a cross-departmental team of communications staff and other city employees, "Lake to Lake" succeeds "It's Your City," a news magazine show that aired from 1998 to 2011.
