2017 Political Programming Season Begins Sept. 4th

September 4, 2017 officially begins this year’s
Politcal Programming Season

 

The election season is upon us and LMCTV will be offering its traditional “Meet the Candidates” show for all political parties in the upcoming election.  For this campaign, we have established the following milestones:

 

Monday, September 4th

Campaign Period officially begins.  Any candidate who hosts or produces a show may not continue with their show.  This includes any and all candidates, even those running unopposed.  Candidates are free to appear on other shows as invited.

A party running candidates for a local election, such as for a Board of Trustees, may produce two programs (deadlines below).  A bonafide independent candidate running for a local election may also produce two programs.  A party running candidates for a Congress, NYS Assembly, County Legislator, or County Executive, whose district includes Larchmont, Mamaroneck, or Rye Neck may produce one program, due Tuesday, October 17th. Similarly, an independent candidate for the aforementioned offices may produce one program due Tuesday, October 17th.

 

Tuesday, September 26th

First “Meet the Candidates” program for local elections due by 10am at LMCTV Headquarters, 740 W. Boston Post Road, Mamaroneck, Suite #311.  That means political parties or bona fide independent candidates have until then to make their first show.  The first “Meet the Candidates” programs will begin to air that day on our prime-time political programming blocks and will continue to air regularly and often until we begin running the second “Meet the Candidates” program (see below), which will also air on a regular basis.

 

Tuesday, October 17th

Second “Meet the Candidates” program for local elections due by 10am at LMCTV Headquarters.  These programs will begin airing that day through Election Day.  “Meet the Candidates” program for Congress, NYS Assembly, County Legislator, and County Executive due by 10am at LMCTV Headquarters.  These programs will begin airing that day through Election Day.
