WCTV NEWS & NOTES: WCTV To Air Annual Town Meeting Live On May 1, Election Night Coverage A Huge Success

Below is an announcement from from Wilmington Community Television:


On Saturday, April 24th WCTV produced a Live Election Night program with coverage direct from our Waltham St. Studio and from Town Hall.

If you had a chance to watch it, you will notice awesome graphics, green screen technology, video segments recorded earlier at the polls, plus some exceptional hosts and interviews. I’d like to congratulate everyone who made the evening a success beginning with WCTV’s Operations Manager, Adam Dusenberry. Adam had big ideas for Election this year and took the lead building the graphic images used throughout the program as well as producing the event overall. What flies by so quickly on television took weeks of preparation and planning.

In addition, we had a great crew including Tom Pazyra who produced an interview segment from the polls, Don Leard our field producer at Town Hall, Stephen Zubricki the graphics wiz, and Sean Tivnan running audio. I (Ryan Malyar) was there too, as floor manager- ensuring that guests were fitted with microphones and prepped to appear on live television.

While WCTV was busy setting the stage, our hosts had their own preparations to make. Rob Peterson, Jr. and Jonathan Eaton took the job seriously and made thoughtful observations on the issues that matter to Wilmington. They were also joined by Jennifer Bryson of Wilmington’s School Committee, and Greg Bendel of the Board of Selectmen who reported on their committees. As we drew closer to the announcement of Wilmington’s newly elected, we were visited by numerous candidates for the School Committee and Board of Selectmen who took a moment to speak about their race and thanked their supporters.

What inspired me most while producing this program was how involved the Wilmington community was in making it happen. In 2021 most people can make a video by pressing record on a camera but we made TELEVISION on WCTV by bringing together all of our resources and talent. This program not only looked and sounded exceptional but also had wonderful content and insight tailored to our Wilmington audience.

I hope the community will take a look at what we are capable of creating here at WCTV and be inspired to join in on the process. Creating good television requires patience and planning, but it can also be a lot of fun- especially when the community is involved.
