The Washington Post on Tuesday reported that Sarah Palin is launching an online television channel. The former Alaska governor and GOP Vice President candidate will give commentary about issues dear to her heart. This is not something that happened overnight for Palin. It has taken six years for her to develop The Sarah Palin Channel where subscribers can post questions and videos and join in the conversations.
The network is not a typical one. First of all, you have to pay to see it. The cost is $9.95 a month or $99.95 for a year's subscription. The network points out that there is free access to those in the armed forces.
Palin, 50, was a communications major in college; therefore, she knows something about the media. She had some experience as a sports anchor for KTUU-TV back in 1988. So, she is trying her hand at communications through her own network.
The New York Daily News reports that The Sarah Palin Channel is a news channel that is much more than news. It is an avenue to share ideas and discuss current issues. Palin will be able to express herself and give her own opinions about issues with getting approval from others. She says she is excited about interacting with the community and finding out what they want to talk about.
Variety says Palin promises to connect with her subscribers and supporters. Not only will she discuss current news issues, but she will also take subscribers behind the scenes into her personal life with her family. Since she is executive editor, she will be the one overseeing all content posted to the channel.
Forbes believe Palin is on the right track with this project since subscribers will be able to interact with her and ask questions they might have. This type of activity has become the norm these days for fans to communicate with celebrities.
