CMCM Updates

CMCM Donations 2015

Community Media Center of Marin has had a great year! (now we can use

your help)  

On the Education Channel you cannot help be amazed at the diverse

programming.  Channel 26 is bustling with creative shows from our members.

CMCM classes and workshops are busy with newly engaged folks wanting to

volunteer or create new programs.  

We have expanded our Government Channel’s reach greatly and we now

provide coverage from 11 Cities and County Agencies. Our expanding service

now covers Marin Clean Energy meetings, Board of Supervisors, Planning

Commissions and more.

I am proud to say that CMCM makes life in Marin better for anyone who

values creative, independent TV - and we are taking it to even greater heights

in the year ahead.

We have a great year-end fundraiser that gives you the opportunity to double

your donation! Please make a donation to CMCM before the end of the year

and the Board pledges to match your gift. Board Members have agreed to

match a  total of $5000  in end of the year gifts.  

The Board believes in the CMCM mission and is looking forward to matching

CMCM now open for an additional hour on Saturdays

Effective immediately, the Community Media Center of Marin's Saturday hours
will match our Friday hours -- 11 AM to 6 PM.

This means that CMCM will be open for an additional hour on Saturdays.

It also means that Studio reservations will be in three-hour blocks -- from
11 AM - 2 PM or 3 - 6 PM.

Thank you for supporting CMCM.

What the heck is on anyway?

UPDATE 11/2/16 Yes - it's all working now. We have worked the kinks out with the new provider and the Guide does reflect the weekly schedule submissions. There is one exception, our Government channel changes nearly every day with additions so the guide but not be 100% accurate - but our web schedule always is: CH 27: http://cmcm.tv/gov-schedule

If you've been using the Guide on Comcast to find our programming, you've probably found it very confusing in recent weeks. We've been working with Tivo/Rovi on fixing the random errors for a couple months now and were just informed this week that Comcast had actually moved that service to another vendor entirely. Surprise! So, now we're working with the new vendor on the problems (once they return from their vacation that is). Yes, frustrating to be sure, but only a small part of our daily joy.

The best place to see what's actually on has always been our online schedules which are live up to the minute updates of what's being scheduled:
