Plainfield Community Television , the local television channel which emminates from the Division of Media for the Queen City, is looking to expand beyond its basic menu of accoutrements. Known for providing coverage of community meetings like City Council and Board of Education; leadership of the local cable station are begining to provide something far bigger than what had originally been imagined for a community television station.
With an exciting new line of original programming , community produced episodics and a student internship program that teaches television production skills, PCTV is geared to inform the community and become a career pathway for students. " We are truly excited to be able to tell the unique stories of Plainfield New Jersey" said a representative . " Our hope is to promote an evniornment that fosters excellence in broadcasting and in citezenship."
The expansion seems to be paying off. Students returning home for the summer have been able to test their classroom experiences on real television productions . The students in pursuit of majors like Public Relations, Media Production and Journalism get much needed hands on experience that can make them more competetive in a tough job market.
