Mayor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, José Manuel Bermúdez, earlier in the year, signed agreements with RTVC (Televisión Canaria) and the director of RTVE (Televisión Española) in the Canary Islands, Domingo Álvarez, for television coverage of the upcoming Carnival. The Councillor for Fiestas, Alfonso Cabello, was also present at the signing.

The signed agreement guarantees the maximum diffusion in the local, national and international arenas of the Santa Cruz carnival. With the reissue of the agreement, continuity is given to the collaboration with the public entities that operate in the Canary Islands.

José Manuel Bermúdez was satisfied after the signing "since an agreement is reissued that gives continuity to the dissemination of the Santa Cruz Carnivals in all territorial areas." In addition, the mayor highlights that, "global audiences will be reached through the International Channel, something very important in an edition in which we return to experience the closest thing to normality". "I really wanted to sign this agreement again, because it means that we celebrate our Carnival again and I want to especially highlight the commitment, enthusiasm and affection that the workers of the two television stations always put into everything that has to do with our party. ”, added the mayor.

The agreement includes the live broadcast of the Queen's Election Gala, scheduled for June 10, to all of Spain, through La 2 and Canal Internacional, with a potential audience of 400 million viewers, as well as on the RTVE and RTVC websites. For its part, Radiotelevisión Canaria guarantees the regional broadcasting of the central act of the Carnival, as well as the broadcast of the main events of the festival programme.

After the audience successes reaped in recent editions, RTVE will once again broadcast on La 2 and Canal Internacional, the comparsa contest in its Rhythm and Harmony phase, scheduled for June 26.

In addition, local television stations will play a fundamental role in covering the most important Carnival events, as in previous years.
