ANN'S CHOICE TELEVISION

Ann's Choice Television (ACTV) is the closed circuit television operation on our campus.  The station employs two full time professional staff, but residents participate in a variety of ways.  Whether you're in front of the camera or behind it, there's a way you can contribute!

OUR MAIN BROADCAST CHANNEL IS COMCAST CHANNEL 977.

The Electronic Bulletin Board is also broadcast on channel 978.

 

What can you see on Ann's Choice Television? 

Entertainment

Comcast channel 977 HD broadcasts a number of programs produced in the studio and around campus, including events held in the Performing Arts Center.  Those include our Resident produced plays and programs featuring various musical groups and our own Ann’s Choice Chorus.   Several of our shows profile residents.  Others give residents an opportunity to share opinions and ideas.  (see below for a list of currently produced programs).  In addition, we are now airing original programming produced by WHYY-TV.

 

Information

As part of its mission to provide television that educates and informs our community, Ann’s Choice Television broadcasts our Resident Advisory Council meetings (live with rebroadcasts); Chris Donati's Town Hall meetings; and special events.   In addition, various departments produce programs to keep residents up-to-date on operations.  Also part of each day’s lineup are two daily exercise programs that were produced by staff and residents.

 

Ann's Choice Today

Our daily news and interview show updates residents about the day’s activities and meetings and provides timely interviews and features about campus events.   The show is broadcast at the top of the hour starting at 6 am through 10 am - check the TV Guide in your weekly "Cubby Chronicle" for all air times. 

 

Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB/TouchTown)

When programs aren’t being broadcast, an electronic bulletin board provides information about events, meetings, and activities going on around Ann’s Choice.  Comcast channel 978 HD shows only the electronic bulletin board.

 

Getting Involved and Becoming Part of the Team

Residents can become involved in a variety of ways. Currently, we have residents who produce and direct shows, edit, operate equipment during productions (audio, camera), act as on-air talent and hosts, manage the tape library, and assist with productions in the Performing Arts Center.

Residents also provide technical support and assistance for events and programs that are held in the Chapel.  Those programs are shown on the “Chapel Channel,” Comcast channel 980 HD.

 

No experience is necessary to be a part of the Ann's Choice TV team.  Classes in basic camera operation are offered regularly.  Other skills such as, audio, directing, and editing, are taught on a one-to-one basis.  To get involved, contact Dave Rector 215-443-4919.
