Radio classes commence
by Elizabeth Rodeno
CAPS Media held a successful Radio KPPQ Membership Training earlier this month! It was a full studio and an excited group of 12 new radio members on March 1st and 2nd. Staff helped folks find their footing and their radio voice. The first session covers Membership Program Information and Preliminary Training and the second session is a Radio Presentation and Performance Practicum. Classes are being held every month at the CAPS Media Center for Member/Producers to learn how to host their own programs and share the information and stories the public are eager to hear.
Did you miss the St Patrick’s Day Parade? You can see our coverage of it, hosted by Tim O’Neil and Jerry Breiner and filmed by the CAPS staff and Interns, on our website (www.capsmedia.org), where you can find all our other great programs to stream anytime, day or night.
At the beginning of this month, CAPS Media completed a major upgrade of the Digital video studio to full HD capability. The upgrade includes new cameras, pedestals, teleprompters, monitors and more in the studio and control room. We invite you to stop by and check out all the great new equipment!
Coming up in April we have our regularly scheduled classes. If you become a member this month, you can sign up for our April Orientation Class, happening Thursday, April 6th at 6:00 PM. We will also be offering HD Camera Class on Thursday, April 13th at 6:00 PM and Final Cut X Edit Class on Thursday, April 20th at 6:00 PM. These training classes for CAPS Media Member/Producers to learn how to operate video cameras, edit, run the studio and produce radio programs are scheduled on the CAPS Media website at http://www.capsmedia.org/events. Registration for all classes begins April 1st.
Looking for a place to hold a club or community meeting? The CAPS Media Center conference room is available for nonprofit and other organizations to hold meetings for up to 30 people. We will include a tour of the CAPS Media Center. Another amazing perk? You’re surrounded by multimedia professionals when that pesky Powerpoint doesn’t work! Call us for availability and scheduling 658-0500.
As always, you can watch Channel 6 to hear what the public has to say and watch Channel 15 to experience the city’s vision to provide the best and clearest information for all. And now you can tune into KPPQ at 104.1 FM to hear some great radio! All programs are also available to the public via streaming service on our website. Go to www.capsmedia.org to see what our members are creating for you and sign up to be part of the story. A full year’s membership is just $25 for a TV membership and $75 for a TV and Radio membership. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
