Pete began volunteering at CTM in 2000. The next year he became a part-time employee. 21 years later, he’s still here.
Why? Because Pete loves helping the Chelmsford community stay informed and connected. He also believes freedom of expression and hyper-local media are now more important than ever.
Prior to joining CTM, Pete had a long career as an advertising copywriter in New York, Boston, Austin and San Francisco.
Production Engineer / Educational Program Manager
Tom oversees CTM’s live productions. He’s also responsible for keeping our broadcast and production equipment up-to-date and running smoothly.
When Tom’s not in the field, he teaches TV/Media classes to the next generation of video professionals at Chelmsford High and supervises the CHSTv after school program.
Tom has a BA in TV Broadcasting and a BS in Electronic Communications from Southern Illinois University. He’s also a CHS alum, happy to be helping his hometown community stay connected.
When’s my program airing? That’s the number one question Villu gets asked. But, that’s the job of a Program Director. Villu schedules our cablecasts – plus, he directs studio shoots, maintains our archives and whole lot more.
Villu was born in Estonia under the Soviet occupation and – after being labeled persona-non-grata – was expelled in 1989. He graduated from Tallinn State Conservatory majoring in theatre and film acting. He worked on stage and films professionally until his “departure” from Estonia. After legally emigrating to the U.S. as a political refugee, he went from working at Wendy’s to becoming an international broadcaster at the Voice of America.
Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus is his favorite bedtime story.
Dianne joined the CTM family in 2015. Before that, she worked in the commercial news business with stints at WABG, HMTV 6 and News 12 NJ – as well as a brief stint at HC Media in Haverhill.
In addition to helping volunteers and community producers, Dianne produces and hosts CTM NewsBreak, our bi-weekly news brief and Sustainable Chelmsford. She runs the Parker School TV Club. She also creates independent short documentaries in the public interest.
Dianne is big fan of the equestrian world – she rode show jumpers and taught riding before making her way into video.
Media Production Specialist
Peter has been a Chelmsford resident his whole life. As a Chelmsford High School student, he enjoyed working with the CTM staff on CHSTv productions, and his technical knowledge and passion for video production has only grown since then.
After an invitation from Pete Pedulla to volunteer for CTM, he quickly found himself at home. Six months later, he became the newest member of the CTM staff.
Peter works to assist both Pete and Tom with CTM and CHSTv productions. Most days he can be found in the studio, either working on a video, assisting volunteers, or helping with the technical side of our video productions.
