Summit County residents will soon get a sneak peek at what’s happening with their neighbors to the west on television each morning.

Comcast Entertainment Television will be carrying TV8’s “Good Morning Vail,” a source for mountain information and weather in the Vail Valley, live every day.

“People tend to be focused on where they live. If you are a Breck person, you are a Breck person. But this will broaden people’s horizons and create more options by broadening the scope of what’s available on the Western Slope,” said TV8 general manager Stephen Wodlinger.

Beginning on Nov. 22, TV8 will be available throughout the Front Range, Summit County, Aspen, Steamboat Springs and Winter Park on Comcast CET Channel 105.

The additional programming will bring “Good Morning Vail” to more than 900,000 households statewide every morning at 7 a.m., Wodlinger said.

“Good Morning Vail,” which started in 1990, strives to provide information to keep viewers “in the know” on all the happenings in the resort community each day.

Locals and visitors can tune in to the morning show to start their day and plan out their play, Wodlinger said.

“It’s a three-hour lifestyle channel geared to set everyone up for what they want to do for the day,” he said.

Topics range from winter skiing and riding conditions, road and travel news, recreation opportunities, arts and entertainment and more.

During the show, for instance, viewers can watch live interviews with the owners of local shops and galleries, cooking demos with area chefs and information on special events.

“It’s basically an information portal for our guests, locals and second-home owners about everything that’s going on in the Vail Valley,” Wodlinger said.
