Buckeye CableSystem to film, show Toledo mayoral debate tonight


A mayoral debate today in the Walbridge Park Shelter House will be filmed and shown on Buckeye CableSystem later in the evening.

The candidates - Councilman D. Michael Collins and incumbent Mayor Mike Bell - go in front of a neighborhood group at 7 p.m. at the park facility on Broadway in South Toledo.

Buckeye CableSystem plans to have a videographer record the event and then replay it on Buckeye's Channel 69 at 9:30 p.m.

The video of the debate will also be available on Buckeye Video on Demand where it will stay for two weeks.

Buckeye, a sister company of The Blade, also plans to film the debates scheduled for next Tuesday at Burroughs School in South Toledo, Oct. 22 at Chester Zablocki Senior Center in North Toledo, and Oct. 24 at East Toledo Senior Center. Those will be broadcast on Channel 69 and placed on VOD.

In addition to Buckeye's coverage of the debates, televised debates are planned for Oct. 29 on WTVG-TV, Channel 13, and Oct. 30 on WTOL-TV, Channel 11, both at 7 p.m.
