CAPS Media is all about sharing stories

CAPS Radio’s Open House with Evan Carpenter sharing the KPPQ studio with the crowd.

CAPS Radio brought together producers, disc jockeys and those interested in radio together last week for an open house. It was a pleasure to visit with over two dozen people passionate about radio. Thanks to all those who shared their stories. This is what CAPS Media is all about, sharing stories. Listen to KPPQ-LP 104.1fm as you’re driving to work, around town or at home and hear programming from locals as well as committed grass roots radio across the country. Go to the radio page on the CAPS Media Center ‘s website for information. Community support is welcome in any way. Let us know what you think, what you like and what you want to hear on CAPS Radio KPPQ-LP at 104.1FM.

The ECTV students are taking their well-earned break from school but not from their projects at CAPS. It’s great to see them supporting each other and other members with their projects and fine tuning their skills. There are still spaces available for our Digital Storytelling classes beginning July 17th. Call or come by.

Once again, we are out there covering the Chamber’s Economic Breakfast and sharing the interesting and thought provoking issues affecting the community. Check the schedule for broadcast dates and times. City meetings are ongoing and we continue coverage weekly. Tune in to channel 15 for Ventura’s important meetings.

Summer is a great time to come by the CAPS Media Center with family and friends to learn about why we are here, what we do and how we can support you in obtaining the skills to produce your own show. It’s been said before that we are one of Ventura’s hidden gems. Those who live, work or attend school in the city of Ventura are eligible to become a member. Non-profit organizations are invited to join too.

For annual fees of only $25 (individual) and $75 (non-profit organization), member/producers are trained by the knowledgeable CAPS Media staff in the art and fun of media communication. Once certified, member/producers may check out video cameras, tripods, and other gear for video production and book editing suites for postproduction to create the stories they want to tell.

Go to www.capsmedia.org to see a schedule of upcoming training classes and programs on Channel 6 & 15, search the archives for past programs, get info on upcoming video and radio classes and much more.
