Our fantastic Civic Journalist for Ashcroft and Cache Creek has been providing local news coverage for the last 8 months.  Once the pandemic hit and everyone was in lock down, our service became more important than ever before.  We were the place that our community could turn to for timely, local information about what was happening.  From business closures and re-openings to what our local leaders on Council, in Parliament and the Legislative Assembly are up to, and even the latest health and safety information including COVID-19 in British Columbia.  The population of Ashcroft and Cache Creek is about 2,500 people, and we have an average of 1,300 people viewing our twice weekly show.  We’ve had comments from people who don’t live in our area that they don’t know what is going on in their own communities, but know everything about Ashcroft and Cache Creek.
