The SOHO in the BURG art gallery in Stroudsburg, PA hosted a Launch Party to celebrate the commencement of a new online television (aka webivison) station called, “TVPOCONO” on Friday June 7th. It was a well attended affair filled with the excitement associated with such innovative ventures. This was enhanced by the food prepared on site by Chef Warren.

The new “webivison” station is the brainchild of Bridget Williams who is also the owner of Shoppes on Main which is a boutique located in Stroudsburg, PA featuring a variety of upscale merchandise presented by a number of vendors. Although the station is in its infancy, several programs are already available to be viewed online at anytime those who visit the website chooses to do so. They include a talk show titled, “MY OPINION” consisting of co hosts chatting about a number of topics and the original soap opera titled, “The Newberrys.” Both programs are recorded at The SOHO in the BURG.
Unfortunately, some technical difficulties with the computer available at the Launch Party kept those attending the event from viewing the programs the station broadcasts. However, I visited the website in my own computer soon after the party and found a number of shows are indeed available catering to an upscale predominantly female audience. Still, as mentioned earlier, the station is in its infancy as it was noted they are seeking ideas for shows to be added to their programming schedule. This bit of sharing led me to eagerly anticipate a variety of future programs to be enjoyed by a more diverse audience.
