Trust House was the first Wairarapa business to throw their support behind Wairarapa TV and were the catalyst to take the concept from an idea to reality.
Without their initial support and vision, we would not have even got out of the starting blocks.
The comprehensive Trust House network of Venues and Hotels play a pivotal role in the success of the channel.
The Wairarapa Times-Age is the dominant print media in the region and is a locally owned company. The company brings an outstanding 3d animated and professionally presented Met-service Weather package to the channel.
Wairarapa TV realised early on that a comprehensive daily Weather forecast was key to establishing credibility as a quality channel, however the cost of these packages is normally prohibitive for a small regional station.
By partnering with the Wairarapa Times-Age for Weather forecasts, we can deliver a daily presented Weather forecast equivalent in quality to the major networks.
