SNOWMASS VILLAGE – Plum TV is moving to Snowmass.

That’s according to an announcement made Friday, which stated that a partnership between Plum TV and Related Colorado calls for the network to open its mountain region bureau in Snowmass Base Village.

Plum TV, which broadcasts programming in several resort markets, will commence winter programming from Snowmass on Dec. 20, according to a statement.

The station will broadcast lifestyle content, including coverage from Aspen, Snowmass, Buttermilk and Aspen Highlands, celebrity interviews, food tastings and cooking demos, ski and fitness tips, design stories and more.

This winter, programming will be hosted by Ramona Bruland, of Aspen, and will air locally from 7 to 9 a.m. Thursdays through Sundays. The show will air on Channel 16 in the Roaring Fork Valley, as in the past, and will be broadcast to the company’s national network, which also is distributed in Philadelphia; Boston; Telluride; the Hamptons, N.Y.; and Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.

Pat Dimon, formerly of Plum Aspen, will return to serve as mountain region bureau chief.

Last year, Plum TV announced a wave of layoffs across its network, including all but two positions in Aspen. A few months later, the company filed for bankruptcy and was purchased by two media executives at a bankruptcy auction in New York in March.
