TAVULI News Company, a new multimedia organization on Thursday officially launched its online streaming Television platform to boost local news content in the Solomon Islands.
The official launching ceremony was held at the King Solomon Hotel in Honiara.
The company aims to raise the voice of the voiceless people in the country – this is seen as a significant way of promoting the stories of prominent and ordinary Solomon Islanders using the digital Television (TV) platform.
Georgina Kekea, Tavuli News Director said Tavuli news feels to contribute to the media sector through TV.
“Tavuli news is registered as Solomon Islands Local media Agency (SILMA). We feel to contribute in the media sector, more especially in providing news through TV,” she told guests attending the official launching ceremony yesterday.
She said Tavuli’s mission is to keep our people informed with the latest news and development stories.
“We feel that voices of our people are missing. It’s all about news, it’s all about people, and it’s all about providing a space to hear what the people can say.
“Our Objectives are to provide quality TV news and information for all, to be the trusted source of independent and balanced news, and to bring to light issues of national interest and human interest.
“Tavuli’s vision is to pave a way for quality news for our country,” she said.
Meanwhile, through a study carried out by the Media Association Solomon Islands (MASI) last year, the findings revealed that the media in the Solomon Islands continues to receive negative comments on journalists’ performances in the industry, according to Tavuli news Director.
“With this study, we think that we could help to build the industry and so we came up with Tavuli news to help to contribute to bringing back positive change.” She said.
