See Democracy in action! 

Local government meetings aired on Channel 15 include Selectmen meetings in each town, as well as meetings of The Martha’s Vineyard Commission, MVRHS School Committee , All Island School Committee, Steamship Authority, the County Advisory Board, The Airport Commission, and the Dukes County Commission. 

Look at Channel 13 for meetings of the MV Water Alliance, Tisbury Waterways, Tisbury Harbor Management,  The Vineyard Haven School Building Committee, and the Oak Bluffs Town Hall Building Committee.




Final Cut Pro editors will be pleased to learn that MVTV has just purchased an additional iMac loaded with Final Cut Pro to be installed in our new, updated Mac Edit Suite! Vegas editors shouldn’t feel left out of the fun – we’ll be gaining a PC workstation as well.

Stop by MVTV today and ask for Carl to show off the spiffy new editing stations!



We are very excited that Levi Vanderhoop, an MVTV intern, has won the Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank Video Challenge!

Levi will be awarded by MVSB on Saturday, January 20th at the Wampanoag Tribal Center at 1:00! We are so very proud of Levi!

We also have several new interns creating some great content. Stay tuned!
