What is IMTV you ask? It is Nelson’s own late night talk show, following a format something akin to what the big guns on television have been holding down since the Ed Sullivan Show. IMTV is a live broadcast, yes, but it’s on the internet. The show is shot live from Spiritbar and broadcast to the world, and promotes the talent of Nelson and the Kootenay region. The studio audience is packed full of locals, who take part in the experience and add flavor to the fun. Guests are interviewed, by host, Jenna Raider, and then they perform; everything from musicians to comedians, from artists to actors, and original acts that never cease to entertain. Each show is jam packed with wild antics and incredible talents.
