Long Beach Community Action Partnership’s president Darick Simpson also spoke at the event, focusing primarily on an ongoing effort to operate and enhance a new public television station in the Long Beach area. The Public Access Digital Network (PADNET) was created in an effort to replace the loss of substantial amounts of federal funding for public access television stations. PADNET provides a broadcast outlet for members of the local community who are unlikely to find any such opportunities in the world of commercialized television. Knightling president and founder Kellie Sherrill recorded a station ID, which will be played at various times during transitions from one program to another. PADNET can be viewed on Charter Channel 32 and Verizon Channel 41.
Knightling’s booth at the EXPO featured a rotating display of many of the websites we have designed and developed as well as printed information describing the services we provide. Those who stopped by were treated to chocolate truffles and had an opportunity to enter our drawing for a free trip to Catalina Island with a parasail flight for two. We would like to congratulate our contest winner Stephen Jones, Account Manager at AP Logic and thank all of the attendees who came by to see us.
