MCTV15 board president Judith Conrad recently announced the contracting for executive director services to Mount Shasta resident Audra Gibson.
Gibson brings over nine years experience to the non-profit organization, DBA Siskiyou Media Council, responsible for the management of south county Public Access Television.
A former Mount Shasta mayor, Gibson worked to establish the non-profit in 2002 and promoted the mission of MCTV15 to establish programming and facilities for public use.
She brings years of volunteer participation as MCTV’s secretary, president, government liaison for the cities of Weed, Mount Shasta and Dunsmuir, as well as producer and production volunteer.
“I’m thrilled to now be able to devote more productive time to the SMC in the capacity to build support and strengthen the non-profit’s foundation,” said Gibson.
“I will be working hard to establish clearer guidelines for public participation in local television and to build strong partnerships with the College of the Siskiyous and other area non-profits and businesses, including YCTV Channel 4 in Yreka.
“Our mission is ‘to encourage and support the use of media for sharing thoughts opinions and events by, and for the people of Siskiyou County.’ We want to make it easy for you to tell your story and get it aired on television,” added Gibson.
MCTV15 maintains a public access television studio at the Weed campus of College of the Siskiyous. The office is currently staffed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The contact phone number is 938-5910.
