Business Channel Coming July 5
"It's no longer business as usual. The time has come to change the game." That claim by Garth Walker and Leighton Davis, creators of Wealth Magazine, signals the birth
of Business Access TV,
scheduled to begin airing exclusively on Flow's Channel 185 on July 5.
The mission of Wealth Magazine was to showcase and facilitate large and emerging businesses and entrepreneurs. Business Access TV expands and explores the scope and diversity of this message, offering programmes at the highest industry standard.
Business Access TV will feature original and creative lifestyle and business programming such as 'Business News', a daily comprehensive round-up of top business news developments from Jamaica, the region and internationally. Also on the schedule is 'Jamaicon' - a half-hour investigative series on white-collar crime and con artists in Jamaica.
The new channel will be on air 24 hours, with business and lifestyle content, and comprise only local programmes intended to "motivate, educate and inspire", Walker said.
It will feature local businessmen and women and their many trials in operating or starting a successful business, and facilitate the disbursement of business-related information which can help entrepreneurs to gauge and better understand the "vital signs of the economy".
According to Walker, the channel will also provide a focal point of dissemination for valuable insights into the business world, as well as a window into new developments that will affect the country and, ultimately, business.
