Local television station Aspen 82 is now streaming live on the Internet after recently launching its summer programing.
Viewers around the world can watch Aspen’s only live, local commercial TV at Aspen82.com. The station, seen locally (upvalley from Catherine Store) on channel 82, is hosting a morning show Thursdays through Sundays this summer, live from the roof of Dancing Bear Aspen.
The morning show, known as “The Lift,“ has a new co-host. Amanda Russell, a New York fitness and lifestyle expert, joins veteran local TV personality Oliver Sharpe for daily banter highlighting the best that the Aspen and Snowmass area has to offer.
Aspen 82 launched last winter as the exclusive broadcast partner of the Aspen Skiing Co., hosting its morning show from the top of Aspen Mountain. It has recently launched an events division, offering branding and activation opportunities to its partners.
