Milwaukee residents watch Council Rewind for highlights

With eight standing committees funneling issues into fifteen regular city council meetings each year, no one has time to keep up with it all.  That’s why City Channel started Council Rewind in the summer of 2013. 

To create the show, Milwaukee City Channel staff members Dennis Geraghty and Dustin Weis review committee agendas and select two or three topics they believe will be of most interest to residents in the current three week committee/council meeting cycle.  After the city council meets, Dustin selects clips from the committees and council that best explain the issue, the debate, and the vote and edits them together into a half-hour program.  An in-studio wraparound is shot to tie the segments together.     

Council Rewind is cablecast three times a day for two weeks beginning the Friday after the last council meeting. The show received national recognition by the National Association of Telecommunications  Officers and Advisors (NATOA) in 2013, placing 3rd in the Public Affairs category. 

Watch Council Rewind on Time Warner cable channel 25 and AT&T 99 or online at http://city.milwaukee.gov/cityclerk/CityChannel
