Cape Cod Community Media Center hires News Director

Sarah Colvin will create new community news programming for Cape Cod

Dennis Port, MA, December 12, 2016 – The Cape Cod Community Media Center is pleased to announce the launch of new, local, community based news programming with the addition of longtime Cape Cod reporter and broadcaster Sarah Colvin as News Director.

News programming at the Community Media Center will focus on the issues of importance to Cape Cod, including but not limited to municipal happenings, the economy, housing, the environment, and quality of life.  “We know our community well and will strive to tell its stories in the best way possible, all in an effort to better inform our citizens and to promote civic engagement and involvement,” says Colvin.

“We are extremely happy to have Ms. Colvin join our Media Center team,” says Terry Duenas, Executive Director of the Cape Cod Community Media Center.  “Sarah’s experience, integrity, and understanding of the critical importance of local, community based journalism will enrich our programming.”

Community media centers across the nation are stepping up to create community-based local news programming, to fill an important slot not covered by mainstream, corporate media.

“Community media is the answer to real, connected, important news coverage,” said John Nichols, national affairs correspondent for The Nation, during his keynote address at the August 2016 Alliance for Community Media National Conference held in Boston. Nichols urged community access centers nationwide to take charge and to create local, community-based news programming. “Local community access media has the power to tell the stories unlike any other organization,” Nichols said.

Cape Cod Community Media Center’s enhanced news, information and current affairs programming will be cablecast on Channel 99 beginning in early 2017.
