About Easthampton Media
Easthampton Media is a 501c3 non-profit community media center and public, educational, and government access television station serving the Easthampton and Southampton Massachusetts communities.
Our mission is to foster creativity, personal expression, civic engagement, and community dialogues through training and resources that enable anyone in the local community to be digital media content creators. We provide access to professional video, audio and multimedia tools, a space in which to learn and create, and a local distribution platform on which to share non-commercial, community-oriented, educational and creative works such as videos, TV shows, films, and podcasts.
Easthampton Media broadcasts non-commercial content on 4 local TV channels (191, 192, 193 in Easthampton, 191 in Southampton) and maintains a community YouTube channel with an emphasis on content created by the local community. We provide video/TV coverage of many local government meetings to inform and provide government transparency to the residents.
Our Staff carry out the organization's mission by managing the day to day operations, programming, development, and working with community members and partners.
