The WCCA TV Newsletter, August 2018
This Month at WCCA TV, The People’s Channel
Hello everyone, hope you’re having a nice and exciting summer. Summer at WCCA TV has been busy and productive, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! We ran a tally from the current roster of WCCA TV community-television local-originated shows and are pleased to announce that WCCA TV has presented around 10,000 individual Worcester-centric community television shows ( LOCAL ORIGINATED SHOWS ). This amazing accomplishment reflects the high level of dedicated volunteer-commitment from our WCCA TV member producers and creators, as they give so much of their time, skill, and passion toward building community through electronic media.
This number does not include all our current community productions – it only represents those who have produced 100 shows or more and who are currently in production. There are many more single episodes, specials, and other community productions that are not included in this number.
Every day of the week you will find WCCA TV community volunteers, on the job, creating, learning, connecting and supporting community development in meaningful ways. WCCA TV is a true community creative space. But in order to keep our community programming and services running, we also need your help. Keep WCCA TV on the air with your donation or by underwriting specific programming through our Circle of Friends. We’re a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, so all donations are tax deductible. As always, thank you for your valuable support!!
