"Hello everyone, Cindy Lorenzo here reporting for RTVTD live from Stellchard with some exciting news regarding the upcoming Waiting List Song Contest Congratulations celebration set to take place right here in our capital city. It has been announced today that the brand new Harbourlands Arena on Stellchard seafront will host the event! The 9,500-seater Arena is being built to accomodate Stellchard's premier Ice Hockey team, the Stellchard Slicers, but will also host concerts and cultural events, just like the WLSC Congratulations festival. Work is still being carried out on the arena which is expected to open shortly before the event, but we can show you an exclusive preview of how the arena will look once it is finished."
"The head of RTVTD, Melinda Martou, has explained this decision: 'It was a difficult choice between this wonderful new venue and several others around Stellchard that would have also been very suitable to host this event. What gave the new Harbourlands Arena the edge was its easy accessibility from the city centre, with great public transport links via bus or tram or even just a short walk on foot, and also the great level of accommodation and facilities that surround the arena site. It is in a beautiful location with great views across Stellchard Bay, and its position next to the sea fits in well with our theme of "Ride The Waves". We think it will be a wonderful venue to welcome our friends from all around Natia."
"The new arena has been designed and constructed by CSW Cityscapes who described the process of designing the arena as 'difficult': "We needed to design a facility with a capacity large enough to cater for events such as this but one that would actually be filled by the smaller population of Stellchard and Tamausia & Deltannor on a regular basis. We also wanted to create a building that was aesthetically pleasing and that would fit in to the beautiful surroundings in that part of the city without ruining any of the views. We think that we've accomplished all of these criteria in the end."
That's all from me today, but keep your eyes peeled for daily updates coming in the run up to the competition. Up next on RTVTD1 is the weather, stay tuned."
"Good evening, I'm Cindy Lorenzo and I'm back with more very exciting news about the upcoming Waiting List Song Contest Congratulations 7 event. RTVTD have announced today that legendary, international pop icon and former Tamausi-Deltannese representative Paula Abdul will host the show! Abdul previously represented Tamausia & Deltannor on home soil in WLSC 177 with ' Dance Like There's No Tomorrow', and is said to be 'thrilled to be returning to the contest, albeit in a very different capacity.'"
"A source from RTVTD said that 'we are so excited to have Paula on board. We know she will deliver a fantastic all-singing, all-dancing presentation that will entertain viewers in every country throughout Natia - this definitely will be a show that nobody will want to miss!'"
"And that's your update for today! Who knows what exciting news tomorrow will bring? Up next on RTVTD 1: The National Lottery. Stay tuned..."
