Holiday Productions

Volunteers and community members combine to create wonderful holiday productions featured on MCM-TV. Viewers have been treated to coverage of the MDA Santa Parade from McMinnville's 3rd Street, the annual Trail Band concert at the Community Center, a performance from the Community Christmas Cantata Choir, Holiday Bazaar activities, local church services, and more!  MCM-TV will keep the festive holiday season alive with replays of these productions.  We appreciate the dedicated volunteers who help bring these local programs to your TV. Thank you to Paul Weber, Zac Martin, William Martin, Lynda Phillippi, Walt Haight, Dawn Graff-Haight, Mike Santone, Ty Hegna, Lee and Linda Schrepel, Ian Palo, and David Johnson.  

Looking Ahead

McMinnville Community Media is working with the City Of McMinnville to bring City Council activities to viewers via MCM-TV.  The cable access TV agreement between the City renewed with MCM earlier this year asks us to televise Council meetings beginning in 2014.  MCM staff has been working with City officials and an equipment vendor to design and install a video system at McMinnville's Civic Hall.  City council meetings had been televised on the local McMinnville Cable channel many years ago, and MCM is excited to be a part of the renewed effort to share government information with viewers.   

Cub Scouts Visit MCM-TV

Local pack 454 had a visit to MCM-TV to receive their communications badge. While here, they were able to get in front of a green screen and tell us what they enjoyed most about being a scout. There was a lot of energy and excitement in the air as they spoke to the camera. Congratulations to pack 454 for their hard work! Check out their video by clicking on the picture above.

Come & Dine/Life Lessons

We are seeing big changes occurring with First Assembly of God. With the new Pastor Joe Pearson, productions have increased. Chuck Terry has taken on hosting the interview talk show Budget Stretchers, which was previously held by Fred Rigwood. The previous show itself has even separated to become two productions (Come & Dine & Budget Stretchers). Come & Dine is now an individual program focused on cooking family meals that are affordable. Lastly Life Lessons is dedicated to the sermon of the church every week. Great Job First Assembly of God, we appreciate your hard work!

City Club

This coming month marks the return of City Club's programming onto MCM-TV. With a wide range of topics, this year will be very exciting for more educational presentations. Make sure to mark your calendars, and check out City Club on your community television.

Producers' Roundtable

During MCM-TV's Open House, we experienced a great turn out! Many had the chance to sit within a virtual set, as well as check out or new HD cameras and editing suite. The option to produce high definition shows creates better quality content for producers. We are thank full to have so many wonderful wonderful community members interested in MCM-TV.



MCM-TV is here to help local people create local programming.  We appreciate the great volunteers we have and could always use more! In coming months we'll be actively producing sports telecasts and community affairs events, so if you would like to be a part of our hometown TV crew, please contact us.  Training is easy, fun, and you can help make local TV happen on MCM!
