Douglasville, GA- Douglas County is scheduled to debut its latest new television program on Tuesday, September 4th called "This is Douglas County!"

Hosted by Rick Martin, Director of Communications and Community Relations, the new show's mission is to showcase the work of some of Douglas County's services, the people who provide those services and the people they help.

"This is an exciting time in Douglas County, and we have an opportunity to help teach the public how our government operates and learn more about the people who work behind the scenes," said Martin. "I hope I can share some powerful stories that will help our citizens understand how projects get done and the challenges government employees face."

"This is Douglas County" is a show created to highlight some of the amazing people that make up our local government and ancillary agencies," said dctv23 Station Manager TJ Jaglinski. "Our goal is to inform and educate the citizens about the many services their government provides and how they can do business with Douglas County."

The show will replace "8700", which has been one of the longest-running shows on dctv23. "This new show will be a wonderful opportunity to engage with the people who work and live in Douglas County," said Lena Hardy, Communications and Media Specialist. "The format of the show is creative and different for our government access channel. I hope the citizens can connect with the stories we intend to share."
