City of Coronado seeking contractor to provide operational oversight and video production services
Posted by: Coronado Arts 4 years, 6 months ago


The City of Coronado is seeking the services of an independent contractor who will be expected to provide operational oversight and video production services for the City’s government access cable television channel. The channel operates on a 24/7 basis throughout Coronado on Time Warner Cable Channel 19 and AT&T Cable Channel 99. Those persons/companies with the necessary background and experience are encouraged to submit a proposal. It is the City’s intent to enter into said contract for service with a start date of on or before November 16, 2015. BACKGROUND In 1990, the City of Coronado negotiated a 25-year local franchise agreement with Time Warner Cable that included a cable television system and operations support. As part of the Franchise Agreement, Time Warner provided live coverage of City Council and Planning Commission meetings; Coronado Unified School District Board meetings; special City Council meetings, upon sufficient advanced notice; and ran a static bulletin board for the City. No other original programming was produced, with the exception of the live airing of the Fourth of July Parade and an annual school telethon. In 2013, in anticipation of the Franchise Agreement with Time Warner expiring on November 20, 2015, the City upgraded its broadcasting equipment, which allowed the City to directly manage its government channel 24 hours per day.
