Two brothers have a FB page and a youtube channel and you have questions?

Could be C'net is showcasing local talent and letting folks know what's available. Even with a youtube or instagram feed, if you don't know about them, you won't find them.

Hello Okanagan is a cool podcast, I listen to it. Glad they're getting exposure. No, there's no link to Castanet.

They actually produce good content and that's why they are being promoted.

Again,

Why are they promoted as a news source?
I understand they are local.

Seems they are a news source for Okanagan. No different then other local members of the community providing a local news item.

I'm wondering why you are asking on here. The forum has nothing to do with content. Try here: Director of Content - Colin Dacre
