We regret to inform to communities of Concord and Carlisle that CCTV's Executive Director, Charles Paige, has decided to take an opportunity at the newly forming Acton Community Access TV. His final day of work for CCTV will be on Friday, January 28th. Please come into the studio this week and say goodbye to the man who has helped make CCTV the vibrant and active organization that it is today.
The following is the official announcement from CCTV board member and founder, Court Booth.
Concord and Carlisle citizens, schools, community organizations and our local governments have been very, very fortunate. We've enjoyed the addition of Charley Paige to our community, in his capacity as Executive Director of CCTV. Over the four years, Charley has led local access television remarkably well. Today, we regret to inform CCTV audiences that Charley is concluding his service here this month and will be taking the reins of a new start-up, Acton's access television.
Charley, and the CCTV staff he leads, have worked successfully with hundreds of local citizens to transform PEG (public-education-government) television for local viewers. Under his tenure, robotic studios have been implemented in Concord's Town House and Carlisle's Town Hall; one channel is now three, with daily programming on each; coverage of local government functions is more complete than ever before; CCHS students and teachers are vital contributors; on-demand, web-based programming from Concord-Carlisle is available to anyone with an Internet connection; the studio is a friendly, high-functioning resource for any citizen or organization with a message they wish to share by creating a show; and, as any viewer of channels 8-9-10 knows, the quality and breadth of programming has surpassed every expectation. It's great! Charley's technical knowledge, superb leadership, and obvious passion for community television have enabled all of these achievements and more.
CCTV's Board of Directors is a group of 16 volunteers who wish the best for CCTV and the community we serve. We've benefited from the best - Charley Paige - during his tenure here. Now that CCTV is a stable and respected part of the community fabric in our towns, we can say with confidence to our neighbors in Acton: be ambitious, and create a lofty vision for community access TV - Charley Paige will help you get there.
Last week, new CCTV board president Rob Mast gave us all reason for confidence. "We're sorry to see Charley go, of course, but we do understand the appeal of a start-up enterprise. It's what attracted him here. He has developed a superb staff and we're in good shape." Thanks, Charley, from a grateful audience.
