Framingham Public Access TV to produce new News Magazine style show this spring.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - If you have ever wanted to learn about television news, or how to produce stories for newscasts and longer-form magazine shows, FPAC, (Framingham Public Access Corporation), invites you to be part of a brand new, Framingham-focused series.

This spring, FPAC will be unveiling a new initiative to provide a regularly scheduled news magazine program to our viewers. Each program will rely on the talents and efforts of FPAC members and interns who can act as reporters, shooters, segment producers, and other vital roles.

With that in mind, we'll be holding a news production workshop series in May in which we will teach students the basics of how to report, shoot and produce packages for television news.

Whether you are interested in covering community events, creating a segment on arts or dining, or doing a series of reports on an important town-wide issue, this workshop will give you the basic skills to get started.

The three-session workshop will start Thursday, May 5th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm, and will continue for the next two Thursday evenings, (the 12th and 19th).

During the course of this workshop each participant will be working on news/feature packages that will be included in the premiere edition of FPAC's new series, which will be produced on Wednesday, May 25th.

If you are interested in getting involved with this effort, please call the FPAC studio at 508-875-5434, or email us at
