LMCTV — Larchmont-Mamaroneck Community Television Inc., the Community Media Center serving Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Rye Neck, has moved its studio, news office, and field production equipment to the Mamaroneck Town Center at 740 W. Boston Post Road.
For the month of February, new production was suspended, explains Matt Sullivan, Chief Operating Officer. The new studio is on the third floor, just down the hall from LMCTV’s existing main office and programming facility. Says Sullivan, “Having all staff and facilities in the same place will give us efficiency and flexibility and improved service to our communities.” He added, “The Town has been most welcoming and cooperative.”
Suburban Construction’s Mike DiSisto is in charge of the project. Along with LMCTV staff, Habitat for Humanity Westchester was helping with the renovations.
Optimum and FiOS subscribers in Mamaroneck, Rye Neck, and Larchmont will see some programs repeated, like “The Local Live” newscast.
Coverage of municipal and school board meetings are not affected, and varsity sports will continue as usual assures Sullivan. The Bulletin Board will also continue to be published daily.
LMCTV’s existing studio on Library Lane is slated for demolition, making way for new apartments.
LMCTV expects to complete the move by the end of February. A ribbon-cutting in the new studio at the Town Center is being planned in early spring.
LMCTV hopes to find a permanent, new home in the Old Hooks Firehouse on Mamaroneck Avenue.
