Citizens to Deliver the Constitution on TV

Sat, 11/02/2019 - 11:51 -- Patrick

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.

We will will handle all of the technical aspects of the production, including cameras, sound light, graphics and a teleprompter, which will be set up for readers' convenience.

Help Wanted: Someone to Build a Server

Sun, 10/17/2021 - 21:55 -- Patrick

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)

In Memoriam...

Mon, 09/13/2021 - 08:38 -- Patrick

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.

We are busy with all of the coverage of local programming, and need some additional help. For starters, we're looking to hire a part-time Field Producer, who would be responsible for covering local government meetings & community events. This would include shooting & editing. Access to reliable transportation, excellent communication skills, and the ability to work independently are required. Experience in TV / video production is desired.
