RevereTV was able to catch the livestreams of both the RHS boys’ and girls’ basketball teams as they entered tournament play last Wednesday. Unfortunately, the girls’ journey ended in Tewksbury, but the boys defeated Springfield High School of Science and Technology. If you’d like to watch replays of these games, you can find the recordings on the RTV YouTube page. Both playoff games were not attended by RevereTV, so the usual announcers and score tallies were not available and video quality was not ideal. Although that was the case, RTV coordinated with the local media organizations of the opposing teams to ensure that Revere residents could have access to the games on RTV. RevereTV did attend the boys’ basketball game vs. Scituate on Friday night. You can find that high-quality game recording on YouTube and replaying on the Community Channel.
Students of Revere High School’s Student Voice Committee released the first episode of their new show, “Amplify Student Voice.” This program is recorded at the RevereTV studio and features interviews on students’ experiences about being in school through the pandemic, furthering student-teacher connections and closing the gap between the school and community. The full episode is about seven minutes and is posted to RTV’s YouTube page. You can watch this program on the RevereTV Community Channel at various times daily throughout the next few weeks.
RTV covered two unique city events last week. The first was the Inclusionary Zoning Meeting with Mayor Brian Arrigo. This community forum was an effort to help inform residents about Revere’s plans to increase its supply of affordable housing through requiring developers to include affordable housing units in all projects of a certain size. The meeting was held virtually on Zoom and included a Q&A section for participants. Although it streamed live on all RTV media outlets, you can still watch this meeting replaying throughout the week on RTV GOV, or on YouTube at any time.
The State of the City Address was last Thursday, March 3, and took place at the new Marriott hotel at Revere Beach. RevereTV fully covered this speech by Mayor Brian Arrigo and streamed it live on all accounts. This included playing on Comcast and RCN for subscribing residents, on Facebook and on YouTube. The State of the City Address is also posted to RTV’s Instagram page.
