In March, the Alliance for Community Media West convened in Fresno for their yearly Western Access Video Excellence Award. This year, CAPS Media Center took home the WAVE Award for Best Government Access program! The winning program, the Ventura County News Channel’s “Featuring Ventura County – Channel Islands Harbor Patrol”, can be found on the CAPS Media YouTube channel. Congratulations to Bill Nash, the County of Ventura, and Gary Roll for the win. We are producing city, county, educational and other programs to garner more awards next year.
