Amherst Media’s call for community members to help cover the inordinate number of hearings and forums going on right now has been answered by a few members of our community. We hightlight a few below, but are still in need of more!
Marcie Sclove, pictured here, host of the Amherst Media talk show “Going Deeper”, stepped up to task recently, covering a Charter Commission meeting.
Steven Brewer, President of the Amherst Media Board of Directors, took the position behind camera number one at a recent Town Meeting evening, and blogged about his experience.
Long time member and local video producer Julien Lowenthal stepped in to help with one of the Town Meetings, taking a short break from conducting post-production work on his latest feature-length video.
George Naughton, local producer of the Amherst Historical Society’s “History Bites” series was able to capture a Jones Library public meeting which discussed the proposed expansion.
Two more community members have recently come forward to be trained by Amherst Media staff with the intent to cover more of the ongoing forums and meetings. Stay tuned to hear which of your neighbors have stepped forward. Perhaps you might want to join them? If so please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Amherst Media will provide training and equipment for full meeting coverage. We look forward to hearing from you!
