In the Studio This Week

On Tuesday night, our board of directors held their monthly meeting and approved a change that will improve workflow around the office.  The authority of our current station manager, Scott MacPherson, is being expanded and his title has been changed to executive director.  Now, instead of having a head of staff overseeing the day to day operations of GCTV and the board handling executive functions, all of those duties will rest with one person, streamlining the decision making process.  Congratulations Scott!
