Dear Agency Partner,
Remember the hand over to news correspondents on location? The world is opening up and while we all are itching to fly to each destination now – it simply isn’t possible.
While webinars are helpful and educational, how do you know what is worth sharing with travelers and, more importantly, how do you share the information? Well, this and a subconscious dream about being a network news correspondent must have driven the creation of Big Five TV that we spoke about last week. So what will be on our new channel?
Starting this Saturday and on a regular streaming schedule beginning with Tuesdays, Big Five TV will feature guides on location, walking around cities, sharing how they are re-emerging in a post-Covid world. This is in addition to the Thursday stream featuring Big Five team members alternately teaching yoga and cooking.
This Saturday, September 12, Big Five TV takes us live to Cartagena, Colombia where our friend Vicky walks us through historic city to show us what it has been doing to prepare for tourism’s return. The borders may possibly open in a few weeks. Beginning at 2:00 pm EST, Vicky will take you to her favorite places to reveal the city she knows.
On Tuesday September 15 at 11 am EST, Big Five TV goes live with our friend Jalila in Marrakech, which announced their borders opening over the weekend. She shows how Morocco is preparing for tourism to come back, and takes us to parts of the medina where she does her own shopping, and may suggest a few special spots that are waiting for you.
We are excited about this new platform and have on the docket Peru, Egypt, Tanzania and much more. And since we go live, anything can happen! Our trusty producer, Courtney, is there to oversee it all because everyone knows live productions can have the occasional embarrassing moment. The unexpected is what adds to the excitement of Big Five TV.
More content and more Faces of Five are being added to Big Five TV in the coming weeks and months. Tune in at www.twitch.tv/bigfivetv.
