BATV ‘On Point’ read­ies for Sea­son 2

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

BUSI­NESS AC­CESS Tele­vi­sion, Ja­maica’s first busi­ness cable chan­nel, con­tin­ues to in­no­vate and ex­pand as it adds more pro­grammes and en­ters into new part­ner­ships.

Sea­son one of its highly acclaimed cur­rent af­fairs pro­gramme, On Point, came to an end on Oc­to­ber 20 and al­ready there is high an­tic­i­pa­tion sur­round­ing Sea­son Two.

The first sea­son, launched in July, had 13 episodes fea­tur­ing great minds like He­ston Hut­ton, CEO of Conec Mobile Wal­let; Michael Lee-Chin, chair­man of the Eco­nomic Growth Coun­cil; Eleanor Hussey, di­rec­tor of the Cannabis Li­cens­ing Au­thor­ity; US Am­bas­sador Luis Moreno and Ka­mal Bankay, di­rec­tor of pub­lic re­la­tions for Dream En­ter­tain­ment, among oth­ers.

Ac­cord­ing to Garth Walker, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Busi­ness Ac­cess TV, “View­ers can ex­pect com­pelling con­tent on rel­e­vant is­sues be­ing dis­cussed. Our drive is to en­sure the Ja­maican peo­ple are kept abreast of any ma­jor devel­op­ment in the busi­ness or govern­ment arena.”

ED­U­CATE AND IN­FORM

Kalilah Reynolds, pro­gramme host, is ex­cited for what is to come for the up­com­ing sea­son.

“In Sea­son Two of On Point, you can ex­pect more riv­et­ing con­ver­sa­tions about the busi­ness is­sues that mat­ter,” Reynolds said.

It is the aim of the pro­gramme’s pro­ducer, Kaneal Gayle, to tackle more ma­jor is­sues af­fect­ing the Ja­maican econ­omy, as well as pos­ing tough ques­tions to stake­hold­ers, on a quest for all the an­swers.

“We know that Ja­maica is a part of a global com­mu­nity and is sus­cep­ti­ble to ex­ter­nal shocks. This sea­son, we will be tack­ling in depth more re­gional and in­ter­na­tional busi­ness is­sues. We re­alise the crit­i­cal role On Point plays as the only cur­rent af­fairs busi­ness dis­cus­sion show on tele­vi­sion, and we take that re­spon­si­bil­ity very se­ri­ously. We be­lieve our job is to ed­u­cate and in­form our view­ers so they’re able to see the big­ger eco­nomic pic­ture and not just the small pieces of the puz­zle,” Gayle ex­plained.

On Point is aired ev­ery Thurs­day at 8 p.m., on BATV FLOW chan­nel 145/185 and DigiPlay chan­nel 25.

View­ers can ex­pect com­pelling con­tent on rel­e­vant is­sues be­ing dis­cussed. Our drive is to en­sure the Ja­maican peo­ple are kept abreast of any ma­jor devel­op­ment in the busi­ness or govern­ment arena.

‘On Point’ hosts Den­nis Chung and Kalilah Reynolds lis­ten to a point be­ing made by US Am­bas­sador Luis Moreno.
