Lorraine Hess, Link TV's Vice President of of Acquisitions, remembers the launch of Link TV eleven years ago when the team slept at the office and basked in the glow of the very first broadcast. The hard work has paid off and the channel has remained a uniquely independent window to the world unlike any other station. For Lorraine, Link TV is a national treasure.
