MMCTV was created in 1997, originally housed in Jonesville’s postal office building. Public access stations originated in the period of 1969 and 1971. Many are funded by cable companies, in an agreement with the government that they contribute a portion of their funds to the public through such stations in exchange for running their cables through public and private property.
MMCTV was originally cablecast on Adelphia Cable Communications. It is currently cablecast on Comcast Cable. We are largely funded by Comcast subscribers in our three towns.
Keith Longmore was the founder of the channel. Past MMCTV station managers include Marie Thomas, Justin Lajoie, Rebecca Padula, and Oak LoGalbo.
In 2017 we celebrated 20 years, with a special Stone Corral brew and a 20th Anniversary Harvest Dinner at the West Monitor Barn.
