iBerkshiresTV Launches With Local News, Interviews

Staff ReportsPrint Story | Email Story
Here at iBerkshires, we are always open to trying new things. After 19 years of providing local news to our readers, we know no everyone gets their news in the same manner. There are readers, there are listeners, and there are viewers. So, we're working on a potential new partnership with Clayson Creative to bring you a new way to get your news. We're introducing iBerkshiresTV. 
 
In this pilot episode, Jeff Snoonian is our host. He brings you all of our top headlines from the last two weeks. Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer was gracious enough to sit down with iBerkshires' Pittsfield Bureau Chief Andy McKeever to discuss her At Home in Pittsfield program. And we've got a business spotlight with Dave Nicholas from the Bounti-Fare and David Bissaillon from Smith Bros-McAndrews Insurance Agency, two lifelong Berkshire business owners who have a story to share about the importance of buying local.
 
Our hope is that we can make this a regular program. We will continue to tinker with not just this show but what else we can do with video as time goes on.
 
But first, send us your feedback to info@iberkshires.com. Is this something you'd watch regularly? What do you like about it and what do you think we should fix? If you are a local business that would like to be involved, contact our salesteam@iBerkshires.com about opportunities for advertising.
 
Without further ado, here's the first pilot of iBerkshiresTV:

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Voters casting ballots at Tuesday's preliminary election chose mayoral candidates Linda Tyer and Melissa Mazzeo to face off for the general election in November.
 
They also thinned out the herd in two ward races to place the names of Jonathan Lothrop and Patrick Kavey on the ballot for Ward 5 and candidates Joseph Nichols and Dina Guiel Lampiasi for Ward 6.
 
On the mayoral front, Councilor at Large Melissa Mazzeo received the most votes out of the four candidates on the ballot with an unofficial count of 2,860 votes. Incumbent Mayor Linda Tyer received 2,571 votes.  
 
The two mayor candidates were favorites in the race, and performed well above Rusty Anchor owner Scott Graves and retired Pittsfield Police Officer Karen Kalinowsky. Graves took 343 votes while Kalinowsky took 281 votes.
