Bridgewater Television Opens Its Doors to the Community

Public Access Television Station holds Open House to reach out to their community

Bridgewater Television is rapidly approaching its 25th year as an active community access station, and has been providing the community with truly high quality programming accompanied by coverage of town meetings, religious services, local sports, politics, school events, and more. Over 90% of BTV programming is produced by dedicated volunteers, but Station Manager Jeff Fowler is concerned that many town residents may not be aware of the opportunities that exist in the state of the art facility on 80 Spring Street.  As a result, the BTV team is planning a night to show case all of what BTV has to offer. 

On April 26 starting at 7:00 pm BTV will be hosting it’s first ever open house. The hope of the station is that community members will get a chance to see first hand all of the technology and resources that are offered and available to the community, which are supported directly by Comcast subscribers who live in Bridgewater.

The event will include a personalized tour of the studio and production truck. Community members will enjoy interactive activities, including a chance to videotape themselves on the news desk, in front of the green screen, and on the sports set. Producers will also be on hand to provide info to prospective volunteers and interns.

This is sure to be a fun filled and informative night for both the BTV staff and members of the community alike. If you would like a chance to get in on the action you can join the BTV team at 80 Spring Street, Bridgewater MA on April 26 from 7-9pm .  For more information on this event you may contact Jeff Fowler at 508-697-1833 or email him at jfowler@btvaccess.com.
