Our goal is to bring together our region and become a go-to source for local Riverside County news and information about its residents, it’s community events, it’s businesses, and its weather and traffic.”

The program will be delivered via livestream on,, YouTube, and other social media outlets. JDSCA is also working with the cities in county to distribute through their media outlets, in addition to outlets through their education partners.

San Jacinto College and participants in a video production job training program from Inland Regional Center This first of its kind production provides news and information to the region, career pathway advancement for the digital high-tech industry, and job training skills and placement for a population that gets overlooked.
