This is in addition to all of the other ways to view programming...
We are looking for someone to build a streaming server. This would be a great "side hustle" for someone with the expertise. We need it to be set up to streaming one of our cable TV channels 24/7 via OBS software. We have 2 TV channels, and we're already streaming the other channel on its own server. The new one just needs to have similar specs and do the same job.
We also have a need for some other PC hardware work to be completed, which might be an additional task for the same person.
Send us an email if you are interested! (screenshot of Community Channel being streamed via OBS)
We have lost our trusted co-worker, friend, and longtime Programming Coordinator, Fred Marin, who passed away recently. Fred was a friend to many in the area and was involved with numerous organizations, volunteering his time to help others. He worked for the station for the past seven years, and prior to that, he was a member of our Board of Directors for five years. He are grateful for his years of service and privileged to have know him. He was a dedicated man of wisdom and honor.
