RANDOLPH, NJ – CCM: All Access, a weekly television show produced by County College of Morris (CCM) students, will launch the first episode of its sixth season on Mon., Sept. 21. The show is presented by CCM’s Alex DeCroce Media Center, which airs on Morris Educational Television (METV).
METV is viewable on Channel 40 Fios and Channel 77 Optimum. CCM: All Access airs thrice on Mondays – 9 a.m., 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. Current and previous episodes also are posted to CCM’s YouTube channel.
“Our focus will be expanding this season,” said Julian Costa, adjunct professor of business and communication, who serves as executive producer of the series. “Our goal is to share the resources that our campus offers and explain how opportunities and services are still available during this period of remote learning. We also want to provide some informative pieces to give our viewers something they can do on their own.”
In light of the novel coronavirus pandemic, viewers can expect changes in the show’s format. “Due to social distancing measures, there will be some shows where our guests will connect to us through videoconferencing software, such as Zoom,” said Costa. “We will be breaking the episodes into smaller segments to allow more information to be shared in one episode.”
CCM students on the production crew include Derek O’Leary, a second-year student from Succasunna who is majoring in business administration communication; Danny Lucero, a second-year student from Hackettstown who is majoring in humanities and social sciences; and Daniil Barkov, a second-year student from East Hanover who is majoring in communication.
“I really enjoy coming in to help with the show,” said O’Leary, “and I look forward to helping with the recordings this coming season.”
Alumni returning to participate include Matthew Sinnott ’20, a recent graduate of the criminal justice program, and Brenda Todd ’20, an alumna who majored in broadcasting arts and technology. Production support is provided by Joseph Schilp, associate director of the Alex DeCroce Media Center; and Daniel Cleary, the television engineer.
Costa designed the program to provide students with a realistic experience in television production. Production began in January 2018 and has continued every fall and spring semester since.
