Who wants to be on television? If you’re interested in learning more about how you can create your own local access cable show — or if you’re a Verizon customer pining for “2 Guys Who Like to Talk” and broadcasts of board of Selectmen meetings — you may want to make your way over to the GCTV studios Monday night.
Let’s go to our reporter in the studio, who is going to tell us all about it:
Grafton Community Television and Charter Communications will host an open house and tour of the town’s cable public access TV facilities on Monday evening, March 2nd from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Grafton Community Television studios at 296 Providence Road in South Grafton.

According to Bob Hassinger, chairman of Grafton’s Cable Television Oversight Committee, “The variety and quantity of local programming currently scheduled on Grafton’s three public access channels is a result of the investment that the community has made in its cable access facilities, most notably its South Grafton studio and all of the video equipment that supports our operations. There’s always something exciting going on at GCTV and we look forward to having the community come and visit us during our open house on March 2nd.”

Feel free to ask, “when the heck are FiOS people going to get our stations back, already?” Although no one seems to know…
