Central Washington University is providing television content to the cable network TVW under a new partnership, according to a news release.

CWU is providing recorded and live content to TVW to bring viewers world-class speakers and cultural events. So far, the school has provided coverage of award-winning New York Times journalist Roger Cohen, the Washington Supreme Court’s visit to Ellensburg and Orlando Ayala, former corporate vice president and chairman, emerging businesses with Microsoft Corp.

Linda Schactler, CWU’s vice president of public affairs, said the partnership with TVW also will allow the Olympia-based network to offer its audience more programming from Central Washington.

“We’re delighted to be able to share the thought-provoking speakers our students enjoy with the rest of the Washington state,” Schactler said in the release. “We’re blessed with terrific video production staff and state-of-the-art facilities, that allow us to provide excellent video quality TVW viewers expect.”

TVW, which was founded in 1993, televises legislative proceedings, state agency hearings, election coverage, and non-governmental public policy events and award-winning produced programs.

The cable-only network can be viewed in 99 percent of Washington’s cable households, and everything TVW covers can be streamed online on-demand at TVW.ORG.
