What's the Word?

Written by Joe Garozzo, Director of Educational Media

A brand new show is coming to the Education Channel this summer called What’s the Word?  and your child can be a part of it! Since I’ve started at NewTV, I’ve always wanted to create and develop a show for kids, by kids, and this show will be just that.

Original Programming Update

Written by Andrew Eldridge, Co-Director of Original Programming

When NewTV first established the Original Programming Department in 2011, the goal was to increase viewership with programs that were exciting and entertaining. We continue to strive towards this mission, and this past April, NewTV announced that The Folklorist could now be seen on both Comcast and RCN On Demand in New England. This exciting opportunity boosts the program’s audience to a potential 60 million households, which also includes over 400 community media centers across the country, as well as distribution on Luken Communication’s nation-wide network, The Family Channel.

This Week at NewTV

Written by Jessica Leff, Digital Marketing and Events Coordinator

This week was a busy one here at NewTV. It began with eight of our staff members attending the Mass Access Spring Conference at the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield and will end with a shoot tonight for The Folklorist. In between we had the Emmy® nominations party (where The Folklorist was nominated for six Emmys®) and The Red Carpet Awards. Of course, this was all in addition to everything that happens during an average week.
