The global media landscape changes with the debut of a website and community that offers a fresh, progressive perspective of Hellenism today. GreekTV creates a platform where Greeks and Philhellenes from around the world can present progressive viewpoints, positive efforts, and interesting subjects often ignored by traditional media. This active window into contemporary Greek reality and the world of Greek diaspora is without stereotypes and exclusions, offering the world a more nuanced perspective of modern Greek social, economic, political and cultural life.
The origins of the GreekTV project date to a radio show produced in San Francisco by Louis Vitalis in 1940. From those beginnings, GreekTV was born and went on to become one of the longest running ethnic television shows in the Unites States.
Now, GreekTV.com serves the world online. Here viewers will find the best regularly updated original and curated content by, for, and about Greeks—from Athens to Australia, from Santorini to Silicon Valley, and everywhere in between. Through regularly updated original videos, mini docs, interviews, profiles and presentations, GreekTV shares human stories, unique images and contemporary portraits.
In addition to the team of resident journalists and video producers based in cities like Athens and New York, GreekTV welcomes contributors from around the world to share their own stories and ideas with the global community, making the site a truly communal space and fostering an open exchange of information and viewpoints.
GreekTV will launch for public viewing and interaction on Tuesday, February 3 2015. For access to GreekTV content and global contributions plus more information about the project, visit www.GreekTV.com. You can watch the GreekTV teaser video here: vimeo.com/105680548.
