Lunenburg Public Access looking to upgrade and expand
By Kristen Levine
Lunenburg Public Access Television is looking to expand and improve, starting with upgrading their equipment and finding a new permanent home base.
“We’re in the process of attempting to set up a studio,” said Program Coordinator Jo McLaughlin. “We’re looking at T.C. Passios and we’re in the middle of working that out.”
A studio would mean a place for Lunenburg Public Access to do on-site filming, greatly expanding their programming horizons.
Upgrading their current equipment is another big step in improving an active station.
“We do a lot of work around town, especially in the schools,” she said. “Equipment is going to be used for remote shoots.”
A public announcement was issued to notify companies and vendors of public access’ desire to establish contracts for services. The notice is entered into a database where potential vendors can look up Lunenburg’s needs and offer service bids accordingly.
“We have received two or three responses,” McLaughlin said. “The invitation for bids also went out to three vendors in New England. One of the vendor companies is out of New Jersey – whoever is on that database looking for contracts can reply.”
McLaughlin hopes that by establishing a home studio there will be more public interest and activity.
“People can come and use our equipment,” she said. “They just have to come and ask; we’re more than happy to train and assist in any way. We’re always looking for volunteers.”
