CAPS is holding an open house.
Meet the new CAPS/ECTV Crew – the talented high school students at El Camino in the media education program at CAPS. Recently the ECTV team worked with Ventura Police school resource officers (SROs) to produce a new school preparedness instructional video for teachers and students in the Ventura Unified School District.
The ECTV program was created by CAPS in partnership with the VUSD. The career education program provides high school students with hands-on training in all aspects of media production including writing, directing, producing, recording, and editing their own award-winning programs.
KPPQ’s DJ of the month is Kathleen Good, host of “In the Women’s Room”. She has been a member of CAPS for fifteen years which constitutes nearly her entire retirement. For eight years she produced environmental videos for CAPS-TV.
When CAPS Media invested in a local community radio station—it was a no-brainer for Kathleen to propose a show. The format came together almost instantly because she had been working with women’s issues as well as environmental issues, and had honed skills such as preparation, timing, sequencing, interviewing skills, as well as storytelling.
Kathleen says” “In the Women’s Room” is your place for enlightening discussions with experts about our history, health, psychology, politics, workplace, art, child-rearing, literature, social and economic issues, environment, and much, much more. Every woman knows what the issues are—we live them every day!” Tune in Monday and Wednesday at 8a, Tuesday and Thursday at 2pm and Saturday at 1pm on KPPQ at 104.1fm or streaming on myTuner.
