Global Dragon TV Premiere Two Weekly Shows in the Washington DC Market: American Odyssey & Whole Health Living
freePRnow.com, 9/27/2013 - Global Dragon TV (GDTV) started in China in 1996 as one of the leading distributors and producers of documentaries and television movies from the West to China’s growing television market. In the past 17 years, Global Dragon TV has produced and distributed over 8000 hours of television programs throughout China.
This fall, Global Dragon TV will premiere two weekly shows in Washington DC, “American Odyssey” and “Whole Health Living” to serve the fast growing Chinese population in the U.S.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Asians were the fastest growth ethnic or racial demographic group in the United States during 2012. There were 18.9 million individuals of Asian heritage in the United States at the end of 2012. This was 530,000 more Asians than there were in the U.S. at the end of 2011, a yearly growth rate of just under 3 percent. More than 60 percent of this growth in people of Asian last year came from international migration.
Although the latest census release didn’t break the Asian population down by country of origin, the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau found that Chinese were the largest Asian immigrant group in the U.S. with over 3.3 million, followed by Indians (2.84 million), and Filipinos (2.55 million). Overall, the 2010 Census said nearly 14.7 million people of Asian ancestry were living in the U.S. in 2010, a 43.2 percent increase from 2000.
As the world population ages in the major countries like China, U.S. and major European countries, Global Dragon TV strives to produce and distribute health related television and multimedia content in the US, China and major international cities to serve the growing aging population.
This half-hour show features natural healings using food, herbs, and exercises to prevent and combat health problems, from aging, aches and pains, to diabetes, cardiac vascular and other chronicle conditions.
Produced & hosted by Rose Hong, a Chinese immigrant came to the US in 1986 with only $35 in her pocket. Originally from Beijing, Rose Hong has been active in promoting cross culture exchanges between the U.S. and China through newspaper columns she wrote in China and TV programs that she has produced over the years with major Chinese television stations including CCTV, Shandon TV and Hubei TV in China. Rose Hong will take you on a journey to explore American life, culture and history. She will also interview influential Chinese Americans about their lives in the US.
Both weekly television programs are being broadcast and distributed via Cox Channel 30 TV in one of the world’s most important capital cities starting Oct 1, 2013 during the prime time at 7PM on Tuesdays and with two re-runs on Saturdays @ 1PM and Sundays @3PM. The programs are being simulcast to 532 stations around the United States and then overseas by the Internet, local television stations, main stream media, YouTube, Face book, Twitter and other social media outlets.
American Odyssey will also be aired over 40 major TV stations in China and has the domestic and international potential audience of an estimated 128 million viewers. The shows are archived and can be re-broadcasted by cable, satellite, and major broadcast television stations over the years thus further expanding its potential outreach.
