CMCM Updates

CMCM Highlights of 2014 & Plans for 2015

CMCM is pleased to share some highlights of our activities over the past year -- and plans for the New Year:

We installed production equipment in San Anselmo and Larkspur and will start 2015 with ten different county and city governments and agencies cablecasting their meetings on the Government Channel - many live!

With so much government content, we are requesting a second government channel from our cable providers.

We continued our Summer Sports Broadcast Camp and had a great group of youth produce ten live cablecasts of San Rafael Pacifics Baseball Games.

We are launching the Marin Media Corp to train youth and engage them in community productions.

We'll begin to upgrade our aging field equipment and bring the studio up to full HD production capability so our community productions will look even better this time next year!

Most significantly, we were successful in securing temporary bridge support funding from the MTA which ensures for the first time that CMCM has a firm foundation upon which to build.

Your support is essential to our work and helps us expand our efforts into the communities of Marin. All donations are tax deducible.

November Updates

This month's updates include a chance to peak inside the Star Wars model shop, a look at our 'Horrorsonmia' late night movie line up, board member election results and upcoming workshops.

Marin TV Goes Black in Observance of April 16

You may have noticed the Marin TV channels were black this morning. We could make up all sorts of excuses and snarky explanations, but in reality we had a big UPS unit fail which took down most of our equipment for several hours. We have since bypassed power and are up and running again - our apologies for any inconvenience!
