Crowd wanted for Today Show live cross in Lismore

Monday, 23 October 2017

Local residents are invited to be part of a national live TV cross this Wednesday, 25 October, when the Today Show comes to Lismore.

Lismore City Council Tourism and Events Manager Mitch Lowe said the long-running Channel 9 breakfast show will be conducting a live weather cross from the new Lismore Regional Gallery and invited interested community members to come along.

“The broadcast is funded through the NSW Flood Recovery Program as yet another strategy to provide nationwide exposure for Lismore,” Mitch said.

“With the grand opening of the Lismore Regional Gallery this Saturday, it is perfect timing to showcase the new facility and promote Lismore to a wide audience. We want a huge crowd for the live broadcast and urge people to come on down for a spot on national TV!”

People are asked to gather at 6am at the new Lismore Regional Gallery off Keen Street for the Today Show live cross.

The show will feature a segment on the new gallery, Geoff Hannah’s woodwork masterpiece The Hannah Cabinet (which is on display at the gallery), a performance by local musician Luke Vassella of his flood recovery song Something Good, an interview with Githabul artist Luke Close about his new mural at the gallery, and a segment on the Lismore Pie Cart.
