The Global BC News Hour team will be in Nelson on Thursday. Let's welcome them with open arms.

Proud to make News

On Thursday evening, Global TV will be broadcasting The News Hour live from the plaza at City Hall.

It’s our time to shine once again. On Thursday evening, Global TV will be broadcasting The News Hour live from the plaza at City Hall. It’s another chance to show the rest of the province the wonderland called home.

These types of opportunities come our way for good reason. The mountain air, incredible geography and funky feel are attractants not easily matched. Those who discover this place immediately feel a desire to share.

And even though many of those who are lucky enough to call it home want this speck of the Kootenays to remain a secret, we always embrace all who visit with pride and hospitality.

The News Hour cast and crew are just the latest in a long line of provincial, national and international media to touch down. From the massiveness of Hockey Day in Canada to the premium pages of Powder magazine, we’re fortunate to have them recognize what we all know to be true: there are few spots on earth as special as this.

What makes these opportunities even more interesting is Nelson need not strike up the band or roll out the red carpet. We just have to be ourselves. Walking down Baker Street on days like we’ve enjoyed this week, there is a festive feel of authenticity that comes from loving the place you call home. It’s not manufactured, it’s just daily life.

Thursday’s newscast is an opportunity to shine and with Mother Nature calling for another fabulous spring day, it shouldn’t be difficult. Let’s all come out and welcome the News Hour team to our community in a way  that comes oh so naturally.
