Propose a Program

"I want to make a short video on bike safety. We have a great public speaker coming up--how do we reach a wider audience?"

Great! Every media project starts with a good story and the energy to make it happen.

Propose a Program> Plan your show and organize a crew. Once we train you, you'll be qualified to check out Channel 17's production and editing equipment at no charge to produce a program that will air on Channel 17 (and your web site or other Vermont access channels).

Request Event Coverage> Some public events may be qualified for coverage by Channel 17. And if it is not, you can produce it yourself or hire CCTV Productions (or any other production unit) to do it for you.

Request Airtime> If you've already produced your public interest program and it falls within Channel 17 guidelines, we'll be glad to air it on Channel 17 (which runs on Comcast and Burlington Telecom). Don't forget to ask us about Vermont Media Exchange (VMX) --an efficient way to distribute your program to Vermont's Access Network.kvillemaire [at] cctv [dot] org"> Email Kim Villemaire at
