From the website: NewTV is a non-profit Newton-based organization dedicated to providing the diverse Newton community with a platform for opinions, news and local information not generally available from commercial or public media. NewTV also offers training, a media facility and content distribution while supporting the First Amendment right to free speech of the Newton community.
In the 20 years since NewTV’s inception, the organization has experienced remarkable growth and expansion of its production services and equipment. On June 7, 1992, NewTV opened its doors to a new facility located on Lincoln Street in the basement of the Hyde Community Center and resided there for 15 years. Starting with its first channel (formerly NewTV 13), NewTV quickly expanded to its current lineup of three individual channels: Community, Education and Government. NewTV also produces Newton News, the long established, flagship program of the station since 1994. With the expansion of the channels and increasing demand from the community, NewTV moved from Lincoln Street to 23 Needham Street in 2006 to a larger, more modern facility. Even though the equipment and faces have changed over the years, the mission of NewTV has remained the same; provide the community with the access to equipment and training and the means to relay their message or idea.
NewTV’s Original Program “The Folklorist” offers a captivating look at the stories of the iconic and lesser-known historical occurences throughout the world that will forever inspire us. For more information, or to watch the first episode, visit newtv.org/folklorist.
Congratulations to Producer Jesse Kreitzer, Production Manager Andrew Eldridge, Host John Horrigan and the entire cast for their outstanding work on this project which won a Boston/New England Emmy award.
