Local Matters Programming
Rogers believes in Local Matters programming, television that brings communities together. Since 1969, Rogers has invested in the creation and ongoing development of Rogers TV a unique community television service available exclusively to Rogers' cable customers, as part of the basic cable service.
Rogers TV stations produce more local TV than any broadcaster. In 2012, our stations produced 17,000 hours of informative local programming involving over 25,000 community groups, underlining our commitment to our communities and to the objectives of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission’s policy for community-based media. Each one of our 39 Rogers TV stations operating in Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland is an active and involved member of its local city or town, providing timely and relevant programs about local matters.
Rogers TV trains thousands of volunteers, who work side by side with professional television producers to bring unique, community programming to your cable viewing choices: issues that matter, sports that count, entertainment that brightens your day and information you can rely on. Every day, Rogers' professional staff and dedicated volunteers are on location to provide television coverage of the local sporting, cultural, political and human events that make up the very fabric of your community. Our programming celebrates your life, as you live it.
And the most effective way to bring you a true reflection of the people, places and issues that matter most to you is by involving you in the programming seen on our stations. To this end, Rogers TV invites you to submit ideas for TV shows, whether they be for a new how-to series, a talk show or coverage of an upcoming event in your neighborhood. It’s easy: simply fill out and send us a Program Proposal Form.
