KCLV Channel 2 To Air ‘Teen Prostitution: Stolen Lives’ Special
Government Access Channel Special Looks At How To Combat Teen Prostitution

 

          KCLV Channel 2 will air “Teen Prostitution: Stolen Lives” on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 6 p.m. Host Nancy Byrne hits the streets with a member of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Vice Unit to illustrate the problem of teen prostitution.

           The Department of Justice reports that there are about 100,000 children currently enslaved in commercial sexual exploitation. The stories from law enforcement about these crimes are shocking and disturbing. In addition to exposing this problem, the special looks at programs to combat this crime. Finally, the special includes interviews with two former prostitutes who share their experiences and how they were able to break the cycle of prostitution.

           The show will replay several times on KCLV Channel 2 including Friday, Sept. 16, at noon; and Saturday, Sept. 17, at 4 p.m. Like all KCLV programming, it also may be viewed on the internet at www.kclv.tv. For more information about teen prostitution and programs that can combat this issue visit www.lasvegasnevada.gov/teens.

          KCLV Channel 2 Is the city of Las Vegas’ award-winning government access channel. In 2008, the station was awarded an Emmy for the special “Las Vegas Gangs: Not Our Kids,” which was also hosted by Byrne.

          Customers of Cox Communications who do not have a converter box, but who have a newer digital TV, will be able to view the special on Channel 89.5 (or 89-5). All Century Link customers will continue to find KCLV on Channel 2.
