The LTV Media Center in Wainscott on Monday announced it has created a new live news broadcast, "Facts at Five," to air on Channel 20 in East Hampton Town and stream online each day, starting today.

Michael Clark, LTV’s executive director, pledged in a social media announcement to provide viewers with “the ultra local information you requested” in light of the COVID-19 epidemic.

He and Morgan Vaughan, a writer and former director of LTV who heads the Round Table Theater Company, will serve as co-anchors of the production, with additional writing by Ellen Watson, another member of the public access team. Jason Nower and Patrice Jacobsen will direct the technical aspects of the show.

Angela LaGreca, LTV’s creative director, recently announced that the LTV Media Center has closed to the public for two weeks for cleaning and to keep the channels open for outreach by government officials.

“We are a strong community and it is great to see everyone pulling together to help each other, to be safe, and of course to get the best and most up-to-date accurate information out regarding the coronavirus and how it is impacting our communities and lives,” Ms. LaGreca said in an email.
