The holidays are in full swing! The Fayette TV team had fun kicking off this year’s yuletide season with a live broadcast of the Home for the Holidays parade. The parade was just one part of a great community gathering organized by the Uniontown Downtown Business District Authority (DBDA). You may have heard Jeff and Rebecca of the DBDA talking about Home for the Holidays on Episode 9 of our biweekly show, “Going LIVE with FCTV.” We congratulate them and all of the many merchants, organizations, and volunteers involved in the event for a job well done.
A word of thanks, too, to Dave O’Neil of the Get a Hobby shop in downtown Uniontown, as well as Frank Sabec of Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society for making our parade coverage possible. When you see Dave and Frank, please thank them for their support of community television! Also, thanks to Chef Mario Porecca and Taylor Hackley for serving as our commentators, and to D. Eric Nuttall and the students from Albert Gallatin High School’s AGTV program for their technical assistance.
Speaking of high school students, Fayette TV is happy to announce that some generous supporters have approached us about broadcasting Uniontown High School Red Raider basketball games this season. Thanks to their sponsorship, we will be airing most home games and even some away games. We’re excited about the having the chance to spotlight some local student athletes, and hope you’ll enjoy the broadcasts. We’re also thankful for the opportunity to partner with WMBS-AM 590 radio, whose seasoned sports broadcasters Brian Mroziak and Steve Superick will be providing play-by-play and color commentary.
More new programming is on the way, and especially with the holidays underway, we’re working hard to bring you special programming for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Schedules and more information will be printed over the course of the next few weeks – please watch this column for all the details!
