Tuvalu.TV joins Pasifika TV broadcasting village

Talofa katoa koutou and warm Pacific greetings to Tuvalu.TV, the latest member of Pacific Cooperation Broadcasting Limited’s (PCBL) ever-growing Pacific broadcasting collective! Partnering with PCBL provides Tuvalu.TV access to our 24/7 Pasifika TV channel, as well as technical, production, and journalism training and support.

The recent addition of Tuvalu.TV brings our total number of partners to 25 broadcasters across 15 different Pacific Island nations.

Even as one of the smallest nations in the world, the welcoming of Tuvalu in the Pacific broadcasting village is a huge step forward in the development of the industry across the region.

“Regardless of size, the voices of every Pacific nation are instrumental in the development of a sustainable, resilient Pacific broadcasting industry,” says Natasha Meleisea, CEO of PCBL.

A strong, unified media industry provides a platform for Pacific nations to tell the world about the issues and stories that matter to them, through their own lens in the way they want them to be told.

This is doubly true with respect to the impact that climate change is having, and will continue to have, on the Pacific.

Tuvalu as a low-lying island nation is extremely susceptible to rising sea levels caused by climate change, and adding their voice to the Pacific chorus is crucial to the development of long-lasting, Pacific-first solutions.

Story Sovereignty was a key component to PCBL’s Pacific Broadcaster’s conference earlier this year, and that holds especially true for climate change in the Pacific,” says Meleisea.
