The Bristol Development Authority will launch a new monthly television show featuring unique aspects of living in Bristol including popular attractions, museums, human interest stories, and stories about interesting people in the community.

Titled “Uniquely Bristol,” the new 30-minute program will air four times a week during each month.

“We are implementing our marketing plan and this is just one more powerful element. Our goal is to highlight existing businesses and organizations as well as to let businesses who are thinking
of relocating know what we have to offer in Bristol,” said Justin Malley, Executive Director of the BDA. “Another goal of the show is remind current residents and inform future residents
about some of the hidden treasures our community has.”
