Steve Says

MVTV is looking into replacing some of our cameras that are available for member use.  The cameras to be replaced are only 3 years old, but have wear and tear issues, indicating just how many hours of filming our members have invested in programming here at MVTV.
You do the taping – we supply the cameras!


We are currently refurbishing our studio cameras to make sure they are all working at peak performance as when we purchased them ten years ago.

We are also still working on improving lighting and reflection.

If you are interested in doing your own studio production, don’t hesitate to let Carl know!



We have so much going on at MVTV! We have new cooking shows that you can look forward to! Chef Amy has a brand new series that is fun and easy to follow!  Melissa Clay has been very busy here, she is co-producing Addiction Got a Minute, she is producing her own cooking show and she is also sitting in for Steve on the News!

All of our Winter pre-production projects are coming to a close and the actual productions are taking place this month! So much going on inside the station as well as our community outreach efforts!          

Stay tuned!
