Host of Christchurch's Number One Morning Radio Gets Own TV Show

Chris Lynch’s debut television show ‘Lynched’ will kick off CTV’s autumn schedule. Throughout autumn, new locally-made programmes, new talent and new graphics will update the look of Canterbury’s regional broadcaster.

‘Lynched’, a weekly current affairs show fronted by award winning journalist Chris Lynch, is leading CTV’s new Autumn programme line-up.

Chris will examine the recovery in Christchurch, ask the tough questions and hold politicians to account over their decisions.

Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee will be the show’s first guest on Monday 24th February at 8.30PM.

Christchurch native Chris Lynch says "Canterbury residents deserve their own current affairs television show, particularly given the major issues facing the rebuild and I’m excited to be given this opportunity".

CTV’s General Manager, Andrew Keeley says ‘CTV is championing the community and reflecting what’s important to local people, whether it’s political issues or social wellbeing. If it’s important to Canterbury, you’ll find it on CTV’.

Tune in Mondays at 8.30pm or catch it again 10.30pm, Tuesdays. CTV is available on Freeview|HD 40, Igloo 86, TiVo 40 and Vodafone InHome TV Channel 199 and ondemand at ctv.co.nz.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs.
