Hands-on experience in our studios may provide opportunities to serve in the following crew positions: camera operator, floor director, teleprompter operator, graphic operator and audio. Shows produced in our studios include independent productions, government informational shows, talk shows, Public Service Announcements and LIVE event coverage. In addition, we have opportunities for field production work and post production on projects for our four towns. You also may receive experience on PACTV’s news show, PACTV Community News (PCN.) These shows provide hands-on experience both in studio and on location, depending upon your level of experience. The news show is recorded every other Tuesday morning. Video production experience is desired especially applicants with editing experience.
