Robert “Clay” Walsh, a former candidate for Lynn City Council, has launched a new television show, “The Lynn Show,” that can be viewed on lynnshow.com.
Walsh, 35, said the show focuses on “Lynn residents who are making a positive contribution to the community.”
“We’re doing a similar thing to a blog,” but instead of writing a story, we’re putting up a video on line,” said Walsh. “We’re working in conjunction with Lynn Resource Channel.”
Walsh conducts ten-minute interviews for the show at the Lynn Museum. The first guest was David Gass of the Highlands Coalition, a non-profit organization in Lynn.
The Lynn Show made its debut last week. The next show will feature Joe Savia of the Lexington Street Band Other scheduled guests are Joshua Resnek, editor of the Lynn Journal and a resident of the city, and Dusty Caulfield, candidate for state representative.
Walsh said Boston North.com television host Lou Markakis of Lynn helped prepare him for his first television show hosting role.
Asked what inspired him to start a TV show, Walsh said, “I attended a United Way meeting and they were looking for solutions to some of the local issues we’re facing, and I suggested using the power of television to get the positive things in our community out there to the people. I reached out to Lynn Resource Channel and we put a show together.”
