Located in a section of the Collins Center at the Andover High School, is a fully functioning television studio, producing local television content on a regular basis.
With space and equipment to share, the staff at Andover TV is encouraging the public to produce their own shows to air on public access television.
“At Andover TV, we train volunteers interested in creating local television programming. Training is offered in studio production, field production and digital editing,” said Wess Murphy, executive director of Andover TV, or Andover Community Access & Media. The station airs on channel 8 on Comcast and channel 47 on Fios.
Andover TV, a non-profit serving Andover residents, is inviting various members of the community to train with equipment at the station, including parishioners, members of the business community and others.
“Non profits and other organizations may submit announcements for posting [on TV],” said Murphy.
However, an affiliation with an organization is in no way necessary and one only needs proof of residence in Andover to produce your own TV show.
Andover TV is always looking for new ways to play a positive role in the community by partnering with various organizations. They have close connections with Memorial Hall Library, Andover Youth Services and the Andover Rotary as well as the Town of Andover.
