HUDSY is a community-inspired platform with a mission to bring our region closer together online and in-person through the power of storytelling, fostering connection in innovative, collaborative, and unique ways in order to counteract the disconnection rampant in this digital world.
To execute this mission, we have to look at every aspect of our business and how we reach our community through fresh eyes. With innovation and non-traditional approaches we can work together to bring the region closer and help individuals, organizations and businesses thrive.

Storytelling has been the foundation of connection for centuries, and in this century, streaming video is the most impactful medium for consuming it.
- Viewers retain 93% of what they see in a video compared to 10% of what they read as text and global video views are exponentially growing, up more than 23% since the beginning of the pandemic.
As more people continue to cut the cord and only rely on streaming platforms that don’t have local stations, it leaves very few options for connecting with your community.
HUDSY offers new, values-aligned opportunities to share your stories with your own community through the medium of video, while keeping your resources and their attention local, and creating a reimagined and regenerative ecosystem.

COMMUNITY EVENT VIDEOS
One of our more requested services is capturing community events happening around the region and creating recap videos. Many of these community events do not have a budget to be able to afford to make such a video and spread their cultural message further. HUDSY strives to offer services where possible, however with your support, we can cover an event of your choosing.
Check out some of the recap videos we have created.
WATCH LOCAL PROGRAM
We envision a world where watching local is a part of our everyday lives. From our libraries, to our colleges, to our homes, we want to offer a way for our neighbors to connect and know what’s going on in their own communities. HUDSY's Watch Local program aims to partner with anchor institutions and local businesses to help bring local programming back.
