Special Olympics Celebrates Two Years on CAN TV

This month, Special Olympics Chicago athletes are celebrating the two-year anniversary of having their own show on CAN TV.

In 2012, Special Children’s Charities teamed up with CAN TV to help its athletes independently produce their own monthly half-hour program called Special Olympics Chicago.

“This partnership is greatly valued as we work to build a community of acceptance and inclusion for all,” said Susan Nicholl, Executive Director of Special Children’s Charities.

Through CAN TV’s customized training course, the athletes learned how to do everything from operating cameras to acting as hosts.

“Their enthusiasm is apparent as they master the tools needed to tell their stories to the viewing audience,” Nicholl said.

Watch Special Olympics Chicago Saturday, December 6th, at 9:30 a.m. on CAN TV19.
