Build, strengthen and empower – the trifecta and driving force behind Carib101 Media Group’s latest legacy-building project.
Since the launch and rebrand of Carib101 Radio in 2016, the wheels of motion have been turning, eradicating boundaries and paving the way towards even more community-focused endeavors.
At the beginning of June, Carib101 Media Group was proud to announce the launch of The Toronto Caribbean Network known formally as My TCN TV an internet TV platform dedicated to bringing you positive uplifting programming designed to leave a memorable impact on your life. TCN TV was created to showcase the movements of community leaders and social justice advocates sharing solutions to the issues faced by the community every day.
These days watching the news and listening to the problems of mainstream media has become quite the drag. Over the past few years, more problems rather than solutions have come to the forefront where the media is concerned especially with the influx of fake news, government politics and the unwarranted surplus of negative opinions on each new issue addressed.
Morals and values have gone out the window, and society has accepted that they are never going to hear about anything good when they sit down to watch International News at 6 pm.
The TCN Network is made up of positive purpose driven, and legacy building initiatives. Each show is designed to do more and stand out by highlighting the people, and community leaders dedicating their time and efforts towards going the extra mile to impact positive change.
While it’s important to stay informed on the current state of the world, to know about the affairs taking place across the border and abroad, it’s not fair to subject yourself to only the problems that we face, but also take advantage of learning the steps we can take to solve them.
Through TCN TV you can discover a new avenue of receiving information with real people working in the community to shed some light and educate us on matters of importance, such as the struggles and victories of an entrepreneur, personal development, creating positive shifts and movements, reaching and connecting with each other and most importantly coming together uniting to influence positive change.
My TCN TV is available to stream on YouTube and Facebook and every show is aired live encouraging audience interaction inviting individuals looking to challenge the social stigmas we face as a community and discover answers to the hard questions.
On Tuesdays from 5-6pm, it’s an unfiltered, unapologetic and transformative experience with Simone Jennifer Smith and Dave Rankin on Hear 2 Help You. This show refuses to accept the rules of society or become complacent on the quest for knowledge. Hear 2 Help You offers a look into concerns, ideologies and the culture in Toronto. Most importantly H2H You exposes viewers to community figures unlikely to be seen in the traditional media.
Following H2H You from 6-7pm is The Visionary Show hosted by Jamelle Lindo focusing on live coaching and interviews with people who are creating positive shifts within their communities.
