A small group of local residents are inviting fellow citizens into our studio to read the Constitution. This project will result in a compilation of readings- each person will read a section- which will then be televised and streamed online. Copies of the Constitution are available - thanks to Representative Peter Welch’s office- here at the station.

To arrange a time to record, please contact us here at the station by calling 228-8808 or emailing Patrick. People of all ages are encouraged to participate. The station is handicapped accessible.

Our Town Meeting Coverage

Thu, 03/02/2023 - 20:58 -- Patrick

Throughout the year, we provide "gavel-to-gavel" coverage of regular monthly meetings & special meetings of several local government bodies. We do this in the Towns of Ludlow, Plymouth, Cavendish, Andover, & Mount Holly. 

And then there's the annual Town Meetings, ahead of the annual Town Meeting Day in Vermont, which falls on the first Tuesday of March. We cover all 5 in the above-mentioned Towns - and 4 of them take place simultaneously on Monday night! 

We show a couple of the meetings live, and record the rest. All of them play in steady rotation as soon as they are done, and through Town Meeting Day.  This requires a lot of coordination & is quite resource-intensive..but we also enjoy our role in this important democratic institution!
