TEMECULA – JDS Creative Academy, 28069 Diaz Road, in Temecula is debuting a new name for their magazine-style news and information show, “Spirit of Innovation.” The JDSCA board decided to rebrand the show and swap out the word “spectrum,” which incorporated the meaning of “being on the autism spectrum,” with “spirit.” JDS Creative Academy felts “spirit” represents who they are as a collective group, whereas the word “spectrum,” represents only a subset of their SOI job training crew.
Spirit, by definition, derives from the Latin word, “breath.” Spirit, like breath, is something that is essential to one’s life. Spirit can have several different interpretations, depending on background and the context. However, in today’s current world, “Spirit of Innovation” aims to be something everyone can relate to and to be a TV show that offers knowledge, community, innovation and so much more to engage the human spirit in a positive way.
The magazine-style TV show will follow the same flow as previously known. “Spirit of Innovation” will be bringing viewers impactful and innovative news segments with influential community leaders to give county and city updates, good-to-know and need-to-know news. Viewers, supporters and followers of “Spirit of Innovation” can also look forward to social updates that aim to bring you daily news and information via all our social media platforms.
JDS Creative Academy’s job-training program produces a microversion of “Spirit of Innovation,” called the SOI Update, that covers sports, weather, community events, road conditions and is broadcast live on YouTube and RivCo TV throughout the county. The JDSCA training program is tailored to special needs adults who are differently abled and want to learn the ins and outs of television production. The training program was founded two years ago and operates out of JDS Studios in Temecula to provide a creative, safe and collective environment for inclusive career pathway opportunities.
The rebrand is in the attempt to get things spruced up a bit, to highlight the innovative culture and the goodwill “spirit” that JDS Creative Academy is recognized for. Viewers can expect to see a new set, new graphics, fresh, bright, colors to light up the new logo and many more exciting features that are soon to be unveiled.
“We are all really excited about the show taking on its new name and freshening up its look all while keeping the promise of delivering the need to know and good to know,” Diane Strand, founder of JDS Creative Academy, said.
The “Spirit of Innovation” crew is working hard and can’t wait to have guests back on their set. All previous shows and episodes are still available on the new domain, http://SpiritOfInnovation.org.
The most recently released special COVID-19 episodes are currently airing on Rivco TV and Community Access Channels for both Temecula and Murrieta. JDS Creative Academy job-training crew also puts out the “S.W.E.I.T SPOT” news update on radio station 102.5-FM the Vine.
