The County Seat was launched five years ago as a solution to counties not being able to reach and engage their constituents through normal media channels. They were equally concerned with their needs getting overlooked by legislators, as well as state and federal agencies. As the issues counties grapple with have become more complicated, information has become simplified and sensationalized; which has turned out to be a poor process for discussing public policy.
The County Seat focuses on the important local issues in a longer format rather than the 90-second news story, aimed at beginning a dialogue. This allows viewers to jump in and learn about County Government without running for office.
The County Seat is broadcast Sunday Mornings at 8:30 on the ABC affiliate out of Salt Lake City, UTAH (KTVX) and re-aired on local cable channels across the state.
