inSauga.com Partners With Mississauga Board of Trade on Unprecedented Municipal Election Coverage
Published October 31, 2017 at 6:02 pm
The team behind inSauga.com and inBrampton.com is proud to announce that it has partnered with the Mississauga Board of Trade (MBOT) to bring Peel residents full coverage of the upcoming mayoral candidate debates in the 2018 municipal elections.
The people behind two of the largest media outlets in Peel, which are on track to achieve a reach of 40 million people, recently announced that it partnered with former RogersTV head producer Frank Bosnjak and Tri-Lite TV— an organization with a long history in political coverage–to bring residents municipal election coverage on Facebook Live.
Now, MBOT has agreed to partner with the growing media company on an unprecedented initiative to bring real-time election and debate coverage to viewers through Facebook Live.
MBOT, a long-standing organization that represents Mississauga businesses, has a large, diverse and active membership that has made it one of the most vibrant business associations in Canada.
“The Mississauga Board of Trade is excited to work with insauga on this innovative election campaign project,” says David Wojcik, President and CEO of MBOT. “We look forward to continuing our long standing presence during all candidate debates in the City of Mississauga.”
Khaled Iwamura, the founder of inSauga.com and inBrampton.com, and Bosnjak, a former Supervising Producer at Rogers TV who has worked on projects for The CBC, CTV, CityTV, Global and Tri-Lite TV, will be launching Facebook Live election coverage in 2018 in Tri-Lite’s 3,000 square foot television facility in Mississauga.
The coverage will stream on insauga and inbrampton’s Facebook pages, providing accessible coverage of the upcoming 2018 municipal elections. The initiative will fill the void in local coverage left by sudden closure of Rogers TV.
“We knew when Rogers TV closed their doors that the biggest concern that people of Mississauga and Brampton had was how the municipal election coverage and debates would be covered,” says Khaled Iwamura, founder of inSauga.com and inBrampton.com. “Now, we have a massive studio and the far-reaching broadcast medium of Facebook to make for the most watched debates in the history of the Region of Peel.”
Since the studio will broadcast all of its content on Facebook Live, viewers will not need cable to watch election coverage and debates.
Now, election coverage will be available to anyone—not just people with subscriptions to Rogers cable.
Stay tuned to insauga.com and inbrampton.com to learn more about the launch and exciting volunteer opportunities.
