10:26am Tuesday 24th December 2013 in News
A FORMER West Dorset man is now making a huge digital impression on the other side of the world.
Alex Breingan is the managing director of Choice TV which is based in New Zealand, and was recently crowned the sixth most watched channel in the country following the release of recent viewing figures.
It has been a sharp rise to the top for the former Woodroffe School student, as he only launched the channel at the end of April this year.
Run by a team of 22 staff, including his wife Rachel, the station now has an annual turnover of $6million and has been snapped up by Sky TV to be shown via their airwaves.
Mr Breingan said both he and the rest of the staff who worked at the station had been shocked by how quickly the station has taken off.
He recently returned to Lyme Regis to visit family.
