90% of Londoners want their own TV station
In a survey of streetlife.com’s 40,000 London users, about 9 out of 10 are proud to live in London and want a dedicated London TV station.
This was one of the findings by a survey this month for the Channel 6 Consortium which is bidding for the London TV franchise due to be awarded next month. The survey was carried out by streetlife.com, the local social network, of those of their users who live in London.
Commenting on the findings, Richard Horwood, Chief Executive of Channel 6, said: “This comprehensively gives the lie to those cynical national media pundits who constantly assert that there’s no public demand for local TV.”
