This Week in the News

After another busy week, we take a little time to reflect on some of the news stories we worked on:

On Tuesday, Massachusetts lawmakers released their proposed maps for redrawing state House and Senate districts.  Our Station Manager immediately got on the phone with local legislators, setting up interviews to get their thoughts on the new political lines as they relate to Greenfield, and we hope to post that story on our homepage next week.

On Wednesday night, Greenfield's Town Council debated their response to the proposed legislative districts live on Cable Channel 15 and you can watch that for yourself when it re-airs tomorrow afternoon, following the Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG) Meeting from Thursday night which airs at 1pm.

In addition to covering the FRCOG on Thursday, our Station Manager attended the Knowledge Corridor Light Rail Groundbreaking ceremony in Energy Park in the afternoon and we broadcast Greenfield's School Committee Meeting live that night.  The dignitaries attending the groundbreaking were happy to spend a few moments with us afterward, including State Representative Paul Mark who gave us his views on re-districting in addition to discussing the jobs and other benefits resulting from passenger train service returning to Greenfield.

Finally, we were excited to catch up with David Pakman early this morning, after his speech to the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce, to discuss his self-titled show which airs on GCTV Tuesdays at 8pm and Thursdays at 11pm.

One last noteworthy thing we'd like to mention, our Masquerade Party fundraiser is just over a week away.  If you want to find out about the prizes you could win in our costume contest, click on over to our page on Facebook for some sneak peeks.  To find out more about the event in general, click here.
