Valley Vision Keeps Conway Listeners in the Loop

By Elisha Neubauer

Valley Vision is filling an invaluable void for many people in the Conway, New Hampshire area broadcasting local events which many cannot attend, such as high school sporting events, municipal meetings, parades, historical presentations, and many other local events.

Primarily, Valley Vision covers three formats of programming: Public, Education, and Government. Public programming usually features content with a historical significance like profiles of old buildings, interviews of individuals that have lived in the area their entire lives, and discussion-based programs where people debate issues of state and national importance.

Education based programming involves school events such as plays, sports, updates, and student-created videos. Government programming focuses on municipal meetings, often led by the selectmen, water precinct, planning board, school board, and budget committee.

Valley Vision is not funded by tax dollars, despite local misconceptions. The network tends to rely on funding generated from cable franchise fees, program sponsorships, DVD sales, and donations. The company is a nonprofit organization.

To add to its community-driven appeal, the station does offer several cameras for Conway residents to use at their own will. The process is simple. Individuals looking to use the cameras must undergo a brief training and familiarization process, led by station manager Bill Edmunds (pictured above).

Any videotaping produced from the camera loan is subject to be aired on Channel 3, the station's current home, under the CCTV (Conway Community Television) banner.

The Conway Daily Sun currently prints Valley Vision's schedule on a daily basis, making it easy for residents to find exactly what they're looking to watch. Current shows include such titles as Let's Move, Rise & Shine, Charity Chatter, Pawprints, All Things Growing, and Granite State Outdoors Block. Other examples include events such Old Car Club Rally, Mud Bowl Parade & Championship, and North Country NFL. Several showings can be found on the website, as well.
