Echelon News 7 “First Responders, Investigative Coverage, Be a part of it today.”



History

Echelon News 7 went live seven days after 2945.10, Fenn Tamplin, a freelance newscaster was on site at the Kiering Station when all the mobiGlas systems began to flash with emergency warnings. Hearing the people outside tell the story, this live breaking news had to be filmed. He rushed outside looking overhead to see the sky filled with Vanduul. Fenn did not survive that day, the broadcast he recorded never sent.

The death toll on New Corvo was of gigantic proportions, many more were still unaccounted for. The savagery of the Vanduul attack made identifying the numerous dead a task that would take years to accomplish. The Tamplin family was lucky, Fenn was quickly identified. Admiral Bishop had his boots on the ground but refused to comment. It was the day that the Disaster Response Teams came and went. It was the day, that it was everyone’s duty to pick up arms and mobilize against the Vanduul.

Elle Tamplin, Fenn’s sister, finally got word of the killed in action list from the Disaster Response Teams. Seven days had gone by since reports of the devastation, that left New Corvo in ruins, were released. That evening on 2945.10.13 Elle, personally funded and broadcasted the branding name of Echelon News 7 in honor of her brother. She named it after a program back on Earth which was formally established in 1971 Echelon, code name Five Eyes.
