The things that are close to us and most familiar are often the things we take for granted. I once felt that way about FCTV. After many years of producing public programs and witnessing FCTV’s evolution from small TV station to full-service media center, I came to see it as a solid, permanent part of the landscape, like Town Hall and the library.
My complacent viewpoint shifted a few months ago.
This week a video was posted on the internet that may give the incorrect impression that FCTV is endorsing a candidate for the Massachusetts State Senate. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) independent organization, FCTV does not endorse candidates for any office, referendum questions, or Town Meeting warrant articles.
FCTV invited all candidates equally to record a statement about their candidacy. While candidates may use their recorded statements in their own publicity and social media, please be advised that FCTV remains unaffiliated with any political party, government, or candidate.
FCTV will continue to treat all candidates for public office with fairness and objectivity, providing an equal and even platform for discussion and debate.

FCTV is self-governed through our active members who each year elect a seven-member Board Of Directors from within the community.
FCTV staff members provide technical assistance to community members and are responsible for the day to day operation of the facility. The Executive Director reports to the Board of Directors.
NOTE: Falmouth Community Television has moved to the opposite side of the building at 310 Dillingham Avenue, in the space formerly occupied my Granite City Electric, now known as the Falmouth Community Media Center. (Units C, D, and E.) You can enter the parking lot from Rose Morin Lane, just off Dillingham Avenue.
We've accomplished so much this year, but only with your generous support. Youth programs, transparency in government, support for the creative economy, workshops that impart valuable skills, dissemination of vital emergency information, local content found nowhere else, media assistance to local nonprofits and charities, equal access for all to equipment, training and distribution channels, and much more. None of this would be possible without our members, volunteers and supporters!
