Marblehead’s local television station has done it again. For the ninth time, MHTV has been awarded top national honors from the Alliance for Community Media for its production quality and commitment to community-focused programming. The Overall Excellence award recognizes a station’s entire range of responsiveness to community needs and the development of diverse community involvement.
“It’s a tremendous accomplishment by the staff, which includes Jon Caswell, James Maroney, Pam Evans and Jess Burton,” said MHTV Executive Director Joan Goloboy. “Day after day, they are focused on providing ‘truly local’ coverage of Marblehead news, sports and information. The award also recognizes the commitment of our talented volunteers — some of whom have worked alongside us for many years.”
Goloboy adds, “We continue to successfully convey the distinctive character of Marblehead to the contest judges. Winning this honor —nine times now — is very special.”
