The Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper and Real Scene TV have joined forces to bring local news and event coverage to the masses.
The partnership is a content-sharing initiative where each entity has agreed to share relevant content from the other on their respective platforms. Beginning this spring, Real Scene TV will feature a one-minute segment on each episode featuring a member of the Recorder staff discussing upcoming publications
“Partnering with Real Scene helps expose us to a wider audience,” said Recorder president and general manager Shannon Williams. “Their connection to the burgeoning entertainment scene, diverse appeal, and professionalism are all things that make this partnership a great fit. For 120 years the Recorder has built a strong reputation in the city of Indianapolis and it is time to expand on that by reaching the younger generation. I am excited for what is to come!”
“Real Scene TV takes great pride in working with businesses and leaders that focus on the community. The Indianapolis Recorder has a vast history doing just that. They cover events and stories that don’t always get the big media attention yet need to be told. We at Real Scene TV strive to do the same. Cities like Indianapolis need to have strong, independent publications that give a voice to everyone. So, it’s a natural fit,” said Real Scene TV Executive Producer Michelle Overton.
