Inspired by American broadcasters, Georgian regional media comes together with a message of solidarity (May 5)

May 5, 2020

The U.S. Embassy is proud to see 15 Georgian regional broadcasters putting competition aside to record a powerful message of solidarity. In a promotional video inspired by American broadcasters, including our Georgian Media Partnership Program (GMPP) participant NCB12, our alumni TV stations sent a message of hope to people and reassured their audiences that they continue to work for the safety of families across Georgia.

According to GMPP alumna Natia Kuprashvili, the regional TV stations featured in the video not only produce daily news programming despite increased risks and further limitation of their resources but also collaborate with one another. This unity of forces serves the interest of the Georgian people.

Georgian and American media professionals who participate in GMPP continue to share best practices long after the exchange visits are over and we are happy to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of this wonderful program, which is implemented by IREX.
