Yerezhep Mambetkaziyev, the KAFU President and the Member of the Kazakhstan National Academy of Science, took part in the presentation of the first in Ust-Kamenogorsk digital TV channel called "Atameken". The festive event was held on September 1st  in the "Zhastar" city park.


         - The opening of a new digital channel in our city, - said Yerezhep Mambetkaziyev, - will be the part of Ust-Kamenogorsk history, starting the new stage of comprehensive and objective coverage of our region’s industrial, scientific, intellectual, and cultural life.

The KAFU and “Atameken” partnership has a beginning from the first days of its formation. There is no coincidence that the opening of new TV channel and the start of training young journalists in KAFU go together. The university which has a successful American Program with the participation of foreign partners has also the innovative potential to effectively implement the best practices of international journalism in order to prepare multilingual journalists who are able to work around the globe. Preparation of exciting programs in Kazakh, Russian, English and other languages is the new trend for future talents.

- I hope that our partnership with “Atameken” channel, - the President of KAFU marked next, - will allow us to prepare TV journalists not in an abstract theory, but in a real creative process. Nowadays it is an important requirement to the educational process. We hope for the development of youth journalism in our city.  I wish great success to the creative team! We are waiting for bright news reports and analytical programs.

The honorable gusts of presentation also marked that “Atameken” is the first television channel, which is opened by the initiative of journalists themselves. This is the symbol of determination and unity of the team which has to win the audience love in future.

- We are pleased to see our friends today! - The director of "Atameken" Almagul Sembinova welcomed the guests. - Our goal is to win the respect of the audience by quality materials. The understanding and support of our partners are really important for us, and the role of Kazakh-American Free University, represented by Yerezhep Alhairovich and Aydar Erezhepovich is special! We appreciate that!

Information and entertainment channel "Atameken" is focused on Ust-Kamenogorsk residents as well as the whole region. Broadcasting will be carried on the cable television "AlmaTV". Journalists will soon present information and analytical programs to the audience. The channel also offers support for the useful social actions and movements that help people unleash their potential and find out new names of bright talent.

On the day of the presentation a concert featuring the best music and dance groups of the city was presented for the guests.
