Are you ready for your television premiere?
CAPS Media crews are working closely with Ventura City and Ventura County officials to provide accurate and updated information on the coronavirus emergency. CAPS Crews are covering all County updates at the Government Center with videos posted at vcemergency.com/videos. CAPS is also creating Spanish language translations of the county messages for posting at vcemergency.com/covid19-sp/videos-sp.
CAPS crews are collaborating with the City of Ventura Police and Fire departments and with the Ventura County Fire department to create additional messages for the community and for internal use for emergency responders. Rest assured, CAPS Crew members are taking every precaution to be safe during these productions. All of the CAPS informational videos are being distributed on multiple platforms including City and County websites, CAPS Media, Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites.
The current emergency hasn’t slowed down the determined DJs and producers at CAPS Radio at 104.1fm. CAPS Media Radio Station Director Elizabeth Rodeno has launched a campaign to have listeners, DJs and producers record brief audio diaries about what their lives are like during the distance socializing era. Broadcasters from Australia to Ventura submitted audio shorts about local community organizations and activities. Kat Merrick, Pam Baumgardner, Kathy Good, Nadine Piche, Craig Rosen, Mary Egan and other KPPQ DJs are providing personal insights, public service information, fitness and health tips and more.
If you have a message to share on KPPQ, Ventura’s public access radio station, record your 30 to 60 second daily entry and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tune into 104.1fm to hear the latest updates from the city and county.
