ichannel is launching a new TV series developed to bring Canadian bloggers, mediaphiles and political junkies together, online and on TV.
#FAQMP (Frequently Asked Questions for your Member of Parliament) is a half-hour interview program that lets the audience pick the guests and ask the questions, using online platforms and social media tools.
#FAQMP debuts October 24. It will also be simulcast online.
The companion website is also where viewers click on images to choose an MP to be interviewed. Questions can be submitted by e-mail, Twitter feed or uploaded video to the site.
Karyn Pugliese, producer and host for #FAQMP, says it was inspired by "bloggers, tweebs and political junkies we've met online. It's a show for anyone and everyone who wants to get closer to the people in power."
With more than 10 years of experience in journalism, Pugliese has worked as a writer, reporter, producer and host in a number of newsrooms including: ichannel, First Nations Voices, Vision TV, Aboriginal People's Television Network and the CBC.
