What is Solutionaries?

New digital show focuses on solutions-based journalism

Solutionaries is a brand new solutions-based digital broadcast created by News 6.

ORLANDO, Fla. – It’s probably a word you’ve never heard before but we didn’t actually make it up.

A Solutionary is someone who recognizes a problem or injustice in society and comes up with creative and innovative ways to tackle those inequities, thus making the world a better place, one step at a time.

It’s hard work and it often goes unrecognized — at least it did until we stepped in.

To give those people the spotlight they’ve worked so hard to deserve, News 6 is launching a brand new digital-only show titled Solutionaries that you can watch on YouTube and through AppleTV, Roku or another streaming service of your choice. The pilot episode premiered Friday, June 18 at 8 p.m. You can watch it in the video player below.

The first episode of News 6's new Solutionaries digital newscast focused on improving policing practices in Central Florida.

Each episode will examine a different topic and showcase the Solutionaries who are dedicating their time and energy to those causes.

We know so many of our News 6 viewers are among the Solutionaries we’d like to feature. If you fit that bill, you can send your ideas to solutionaries@grahammedia.com for a chance to be featured.

Even if you don’t fall under that description, we’re still hoping to hear from you.

We’ll routinely be asking viewers to weigh in on subjects they’d like to see covered during upcoming episodes and soliciting feedback on those topics.
