Winter in New England: The Best Time for Live Television

Written by Noreen Moross, Director of Production Services

Happy New Year! Once again winter has arrived in New England and with it difficult driving conditions, cold days, long dark nights and for some, the winter blues. Luckily it’s the best time of year to be stuck inside with your remote if you like live television.


If you’ve been following what’s going on at NewTV, hopefully you know that we are introducing podcasting. This February, we will be offering the first Introduction to Podcasting class for a one-time discounted rate of $50. Once members are certified on the equipment, they can start producing podcasts at NewTV. We are so excited to bring this new feature to our members as we continue to adapt to the current media landscape.

Newton Sports

Written by Jenn Adams, News Director

You may have noticed we’ve had a lot of sports coverage over the past year. Bobby Krivitsky joined Newton News in January of 2017 and has been covering some high school and college sports in Newton. He’s been focusing on Lasell College, Boston College and Newton North and Newton South High School sports teams. It’s been great to have this kind of coverage, as my specialty is not sports.

Monitor Comparison

Written by Eugene Foygelman, Production Coordinator

Here at NewTV I have a single 27-inch iMac and at home I’ve got two 21-inch monitors. The iMac is pretty nice, the screen is fairly big and it’s easy to have a few applications open at the same time, although not at full screen. However, I do enjoy my dual monitor setup at home. It’s a lot better when playing video games because I can have a game open in one monitor and my chat apps in another. When I edit videos at home, I use both screens to make my timeline and preview windows as big as possible. Plus, if I ever need to look up a quick tutorial I don’t have to constantly switch between programs. However, how many monitors are enough? Does it make sense to have a single big one? A couple of medium-sized ones? Or a bunch of small ones?

Top Ten Blog Posts of 2017

Written by Jessica Leff, Digital Marketing Specialist

Sunday night, we will say goodbye to 2017, a year filled with changes that were both challenging and rewarding. One thing that remained consistent was our weekly blog posts from NewTV. Last year, I looked at the most-read posts, using it as an opportunity for reflection. As 2017 comes to a close, I think it is a good idea to repeat this exercise. I’d urge everyone to take some time over the next few days to look back on the year and remember the successes, while also noting what can be improved in the coming year. For now, let’s examine the top blog posts and see what we can make of them.
