Election Programming

Wed, 10/26/2016 - 15:44 -- Patrick

Community TV can play an important role during election season, by informing viewers about local candidates and the issues. At LPCTV, we are doing our part by covering and televising various interviews, candidate forums & debates. Some of these are programs that we have produced, or helped produce, including interviews with candidates for local office, as well as the recent candidate forum held in Ludlow. Other programs are forums, debates, & interviews featuring candidates for statewide office, produced in other areas of Vermont and shared with us by other community TV stations via the Vermont Media Exchange, our stateiwde video sharing network.

 We are scheduling blocks of time each day to show these various programs. These "blocks" of election-oriented programs can be found on our Educational & Government channel at the following times:

Mondays 7am & 5:30pm

Tuesdays 10am & 9pm

Wednesdays 12pm &  10:00

Thursdays 2am & 11am

Fridays 10am & 10pm

Saturdays & Sundays 12pm &  4:30pm

Be sure to check the daily schedules right here, for specific program information. And all of the local election programs are available to view right here on our website as well. 

LPCTV Turns 15

Fri, 10/07/2016 - 10:42 -- Patrick

Thank you to all who came out for the open house last week to celebrate 15 years of community TV in the Okemo Valley. An unofficial tally estimated there were 60 attendees. We documented the occasion with video footage and photographs, which will be edited into a forthcoming montage.  Shown below is a shot of the LPCTV Board of Directors & staff, posing with the cake; and the other photo is a close-up of the cake, showing the fine craftsmanship and creativity employed by Big Eyes Bakery. 

A special "thank you" goes out to the restaurants who provided the "small bites": Brook Farm Vineyards, The Combes Family Inn, The Killarney, Mojo Cafe, Sam's Steakhouse, Stemwinder, & Table 19, as well as the cider from Brown's Orchard in Castleton.



Here's a video we made of the occasion:

We Have a New Strategic Plan

Check it out- In case you were wondering what we do...

 "LPCTV provides the Okemo Valley region with equal access to multi-media technology for the purposes of education and information."  That's our new mission statement, which was adopted as part of our new strategic plan.

Over the course of the past year, the LPCTV Board of Directors developed a new 5-year strategic plan. That new plan was adopted at the annual meeting in June.  Here is a photo of us during planning session from last Fall at the Combes Family Inn:

On June 16th, we held our annual meeting, which included the Board of Directors election. There were 68 valid ballots cast. 3 of the 6 candidates were duly elected, according to the rules posted on the ballots: Sharon Combes-Farr, Jennifer McBride, and Noah Schmidt. We welcome them to the LPCTV Board of Directors.

The Board will be holding its first meeting of the year on July 13th; at that meeting, the Board will consider appointing additional seats. 

Thank you to all the candidates and those who voted for their participation & interest in LPCTV!
