Anna to promote Rockhampton on TV

IN October, former Rockhampton girl Anna Daniels shot a television segment for Channel 10 promoting Rockhampton as a viable place for people in southern cities like Brisbane to live.

But after parts of the city were swamped by floodwaters she found renewed impetus to push the region's strengths.

Ms Daniels, an associate producer with the 7pm project on Channel 10, said that she tells viewers in the three-minute segment that Rockhampton “will struggle to stay afloat if people stay away”.

The former Cathedral College student said that would be a pity because Rockhampton had “an amazing lifestyle”.

“It's cheaper than the capital cities to live there, the lifestyle, the warm weather and the sense of community.”

In the segment she chats to Mayor Brad Carter, visits a bull run at the Great Western Hotel and takes a walk down the East Street mall.

“It's a really light-hearted affectionate story about trying to resell Rockhampton (post-floods) from a local's point of view.

“I'm really excited (about having it shown) because the subject is so close to my heart.

“Promoting Rockhampton it means it's even better,” she said.

The 7pm project airs on Channel 10 tonight. The show averages 800,000 to one million viewers.
