Indy‘s Local Heroes on TV

Santa Barbara Channels catches our annual appreciation of community stalwarts


Just got word from the hardest working man in (public access) show business, Hap Freund of Santa Barbara Channels. He’s currently completing the final edits on The Indy‘s blockbuster hit, Local Heroes: 2006. These are the projected broadcast times for this year’s event on Channel 17:

Friday, Dec. 22nd at 1 PM Sunday, Dec. 24th at 2 and 10 PM Monday, Dec. 25th at 10 AM and 7 PM Tuesday, Dec. 26th at 7 AM Wed. Dec. 27th at 5:30 PM Friday, Dec. 29th at 1 PM Saturday, Dec.30 at 9 AM and 6 PM Sunday, Dec. 31 10 AM and 2 PM

I can’t forsee how it comes across as a broadcast, but year in and year out, it is one of the finer moments for the paper, a time to stop and recognize our remarkable neighbors. This year was particularly great. As always, SOhO was a terrific venue.
