Thurston Community Television Open House 9/27/2014

Kate Jantz-Koprivnik would like to invite guild members to the Thurston Community Television open house on September 27.


For the past 6 months we’ve been renovating the facility and
installing state-of-the-art studio production equipment. Now.. IT’S FINISHED!

Control Room A

We have a beautiful, new High Definition control room and 4 new studio cameras (two of them are on robotic pan/tilt heads). There’s also a new audio recording booth.

The Cafe

The whole facility has a fresh new decor. The Cafe is a great new
gathering space. The front lobby has a wall dedicated for art displays.

If you haven’t been to TCTV lately, we’ve got LOTS to show you. So,
we’re having a party!


440 Yauger Way SW, Suite C, Olympia WA

There will be lots of fun activities. You can record a voice-over in

TCTV is YOUR community media center.  Join us on September 27th to learn how you can put yourself in the picture!
