ABOUT US

We’re All About Community Media!

Catamount Access Television Corporation (CAT-TV) provides public, educational, and governmental television access services to the towns and villages of Bennington, North Bennington, Woodford, Pownal and Shaftsbury, Vermont on Comcast Cable Channels 1075, 1085 and 1095.  We are primarily funded by Comcast, based on regulations enacted by the Vermont Public Service Board.

 

We promote access to multimedia services that foster free speech and public dialogue.  We provide a venue for citizens to engage in local government, education, arts and other areas of interest.  Under the First Amendment, we remain “content neutral” and support the Free Speech rights of our members by not restricting the content or message of any program presented on our channels.  

 

Our Goals

  •  Keeping it Local:  CAT-TV provided 800 hours of original, local programming this year.  We remain committed to delivering content that is both hyper-local and relevant to our community.  We are Bennington’s source for everything local.

  • Quality Content:  CAT-TV strives to present high-quality programming through our in-house and volunteer-produced programs.  We support this commitment by  investing in state-of-the-art production and master control equipment.

  • Engage Citizens:  CAT-TV generates conversations about local issues, provides public participation in local affairs and broadens perspectives through diverse sources of information.  We strengthen our democratic society through civic engagement.

MEET THE TEAM

LISA BYER

Executive Director

When she is not busy tackling state PEG/Comcast items, she enjoys a nice long stroll with her dog Jake and a nice glass of wine!

WILLIAM GARDNER

Operations Manager

When Will is not paying the bills for CAT-TV, he is usually busy brewing world class beer down the street.  It is all he talks about...

MIKE CUTLER

Production Manager

While Mike is a germaphobe, he still loves to give free hugs!  Plus he is a total car nut!

PEG

The CAT-TV Mascot

She ruled CAT-TV for 15 years, but sadly she passed due to age on January 3rd, 2018.  We miss her terribly.  

JAKE

Our Dog

Stay a while with Jake, because once you leave...he barks.  Jake also loves walks and chasing leaves!

TONY CONNER

Digital Media Coordinator

Tony is a master artist AND a master scheduler!  Have a question about programs or schedules - he's your man!

JIM VIRES

Production Assistant

Jim loves to film and help people.  When he isn't filming or helping, he is off tippy tapping on his own adventure!

JOSH BOUCHER

Production Assistant

Josh is busying getting good grades and soon to be graduating from High School!  After school we are lucky to have as part of our team! 

We are always seeking volunteer producers to film community events...if that is you - let us know!
