SURREY, BC, Jan. 30 /CNW/ - Terry Mahoney, General Manager of Rogers OMNI Television British Columbia, is pleased to welcome the station's first board of Multi-faith Community Advisors. Like the system of Community Advisors put in place 20 years ago by multilingual/multicultural stations Rogers OMNI.1 and OMNI.2, the new advisory board for Rogers OMNI.10/BC will play an essential role in the station's feedback mechanisms. Collectively, OMNI.10's multi-faith advisors reflect the various faith and cultural communities served by the station's programming and will assist in maintaining two-way communications, for the ultimate benefit of viewer and broadcaster alike.

"Rogers OMNI.10/BC has grown rapidly in the relatively brief time we've been on-air and the formation of our new board complements this growth," says Terry Mahoney. "As we evolve, our Community Advisors will bring further reflection to OMNI, its programming and its policies."

"The process of identifying candidates for OMNI.10's board of Multi-faith Community Advisors was launched, essentially, with the launch of the station itself," he continues. "Top of mind for us were individuals with a good understanding of the intricacies of their own faith as well as healthy respect for, and appreciation of, the beliefs of people of differing religious persuasion."
