A Network of Newton Non-Profits

Written by Jessica Leff, Digital Marketing Specialist

On Thursday, I went to the John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club of Newton with Director of Marketing and Creative Services, Shelly Kamanitz, to deliver a donation of board games. NewTV initially purchased the games to be used as centerpieces at our Third Annual Teamwork Trivia Challenge event, and now the children at the Club will get to play with them.

History of The Fourth of July

Written by Noreen Moross, Director of Production Services

Known as Independence Day, the Fourth of July is an annual holiday that celebrates America’s independence from Great Britain. Historically, July 4, 1776 was when The Continental Congress officially adopted The Declaration of Independence and thus a new nation was born, where all men are created equal and are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Don't Buy Expensive Electronics from Amazon

Written by Eugene Foygelman, Production Coordinator

Amazon sells a lot of stuff. Some of that stuff is expensive. Some of that expensive stuff includes electronics such as cameras, computers, and phones. I advise you not to buy these things from Amazon because Amazon isn’t the best when it comes to making sure your item is legit.

Friend of the Pod

Written by Shelly Kamanitz, Director of Marketing and Creative Services

I am a newcomer to the podcast world. I’d been hearing about podcasts for a long time, but wasn’t motivated enough to explore them, find a program, set it up and listen to it in my car. I also didn’t think I had a long enough commute to be able to listen to a full podcast, so why bother?

Are Your Wireless Microphones Breaking the Law?

Written by Steve Russo, Director of Operations

If you own a wireless microphone, you might be breaking the law! In 2010, the FCC prohibited the operation of wireless microphones and similar devices (e.g., wireless intercoms, wireless in-ear monitors, wireless audio instrument links and wireless cueing equipment) in the 700 MHz Band (698 - 806 MHz). In 2017, the FCC prohibited the operation of these same devices in the 600 MHz Band (609 - 698 MHz).

Is Snapchat Dead?

Written by Jessica Leff, Digital Marketing Specialist

For those who don’t know, Snapchat is an app that allows users to send temporary photos or videos to others. Over the years, its capabilities have expanded to allow for text chats, stories (videos or photos that all of a user’s contacts can see that last 24 hours) and branded content. At any point, the recipient of a snapchat can take a screenshot, but the sender will be notified.

Celebrating Newton Artists

Written by Shelly Kamanitz, Director of Marketing and Creative Services

Newton offers a wealth of events for anyone interested in the arts. One of these is Newton Open Studios (NOS) – a yearly exhibit of Newton artists showing and selling their work in various locations across the city. I’d never been in town during NOS before, and I wanted to experience it for the first time and support the artists by visiting their work in a venue outside of NewTV – and I’m glad I did.
