What is Chelmsford TeleMedia?

CTM-BehindScenesLike our tagline says, Chelmsford TeleMedia is "Chelmsford's Own TV Station." We're an actual cable broadcaster run, in effect, by you – the citizens of Chelmsford. You make the programs. We just help you do it.

We're also charged with bringing you vital government meetings. But, we're not part of the town's government. We're an independent, 501(c)3 corporation funded in full by revenues generated by Comcast cable and Verizon FiOS subscribers. (You see this amount, noted as an "access fee," on your monthly bill.)

The Chelmsford Public Schools, under the direction of Superintendent Frank Tiano administer one of our channels.  On CTM-ED you will find an ambitious lineup of educational cable shows that combine a look inside the school department with Inside CPS, Literacy with Linda, Matthew with Matthew, Spotlight on Fine Arts, and the Lions Pride.  Educational programming can be seen daily from 8AM though 7PM on the educational channel (CTM-ED) on Comcast Channel 22 and Verizon Channel 36.

 

Corporation Governance

Anyone who lives or works in Chelmsford is eligible to be a member of Chelmsford TeleMedia's nonprofit corporation. (Inquire at the studio for details.) The corporation's annual meeting is held in December.

Our activities are managed by a Board of Directors, chosen to staggered three-year terms from the corporation's members.
