CCTV celebrates 25 years of public access TV

first_imgCCTV Center for Media and Democracy,CCTV Center for Media & Democracy celebrates 25 years of public access television with a gala event at the Burlington Boathouse on June 13 at 6 p.m.  CCTV first aired in 1984 on Vermont’s first public access cable channels.  Since then, CCTV has supported the development of access across the state (23 centers operate 42 channels), launched and operates Channel 17/ Town Meeting TV in Chittenden County, and delivers communications strategies and services for Vermont nonprofits.  Looking back, founder Lauren-Glenn Davitian points to major changes of the past 25 years:  “Ronald Reagan was President, Dick Snelling was Governor, and Burlington was barely a three-party city.  We were squarely in the analog age and the World Wide Web wasn’t invented!”  Since then,  CCTV has secured public access for much of the state and also produced 15,000 hours of programs that cover media makers, decisions makers, regular people, and visiting dignitaries.CCTV’s 25th anniversary celebration will take place on Saturday, June 13 at the Burlington Boathouse on the Waterfront from 6-9 p.m. with the recognition of free speech champions and live music by “Flood in the Fizzy Factory”.  A $10 minimum donation is requested.  For more info, please check www.cctv.org(link is external) or call Megan Humphrey at 864-7528last_img read more
