RANDOLPH, NJ -- The Alex DeCroce Media Center at County College of Morris (CCM) is continuing the weekly production of a televised series of programs, under the new title “CCM: All Access” on Morris Educational Television (METV).
This program, originally titled “Spotlight: Morris County,” has been rebranded to reflect its focus on the people, programs, and activities going on at CCM. “Many television shows change their image after the first season,” said Professor Julian Costa, who is executive producer of the series. “What will remain the same will be our devotion to providing students with real-world production experience, as well as our goal of quality television programming for the residents of Morris County.”
Costa, who is an adjunct professor of business and communication at CCM, designed the program last year with the help of Joseph Schilp, associate director of the Media Center and Daniel Cleary, media engineer. The entire production is a volunteer effort.
Among the student crew members is Jonathan Morales of Long Valley, a sophomore dual-majoring in biology and broadcasting arts and technology. "Though the show is primarily produced by students, there’s a sense of accomplishment that’s really invigorating after every episode, knowing that an audience will be able to watch what you and your crew members have created,” said Morales.
The show is hosted by Daniil Barkov of East Hanover, a sophomore majoring in business administration. "The team and I are all very excited to get started on season two and getting the show to the amazing level we all want it be,” said Barkov.
“CCM: All Access” airs on METV, viewable on Channel 40 Fios and Channel 77 Optimum, at 9 a.m., 3 p.m., and again at 9 p.m. every Monday. The first episode of the second season aired on Monday, October 29, and featured Tara Wuorinen, who manages the Rutgers at CCM program. Past shows can be found on the CCM YouTube channel at tinyurl.com/ydyu7br2. To view Wuorinen’s interview visit, tinyurl.com/ycwx9hc9.
Future guests of “CCM: All Access” include Bryan Lemme, assistant professor, Health and Science Exercise Department; Katie Olsen, executive director, CCM Foundation; Emmanuel Fotinis, Music major; Melanie Mitrano-Duffy, adjunct professor, Music; and Don Phelps, director of Campus Life.
