LPCTV was recently awarded a 2015 Cultural Facilities grant from the Vermont Arts Council. The 2015 grant, totaling $13,750, was the second in recent years awarded to LPCTV through the Cultural Facilities program. LPCTV was awarded $20,000 in 2011 through a Cultural Facilities grant for the initial construction of the TV & performance studio in the new facility in the Ludlow Community Center complex. The new grant is for lighting and acoustic improvements in that new studio, and helps provide the needed match for another grant - from Okemo Community Challenge - that was received last year. The improvements, which include upgrade studio lighting, as well as flooring and wall "coves" for the studio, will be made in the near future. The new and improved studio will significantly increase the quality of both lighting and sound for live and recorded telecasts taking place in the studio. LPCTV is grateful to the VT Arts Council and the State legislators who make this funding possible through allocating those funds in the annual State budget.
LPCTV is seeking a full-time Operations Coordinator, who will be responsible for coordinating and overseeing many of LPCTV's core daily activities. These activities include program scheduling, master control operations, production and post-coordination, and administrative support.
Interested candidates should send a letter of interest and resume by email to Patrick Cody.
