When she was looking around for how to use her training in television production Helen Chatel was inspired to get into community access television.
Now the new executive director of the Watertown Community Access Center hopes to inspire others to get involved in community access, too.
“It’s a great opportunity for me to build a base (of volunteers) and get the community more involved in making their own shows.” Chatel said.
Chatel comes to town from Bolton, Conn., where she served as executive director for a community access center serving about the same number of people, but in seven towns.
While applying for the position, Chatel said she was impressed with the WCAC facility, housed in the basement of Watertown High School.
“When I came in for the interview and saw the facility I thought, this is an amazing facility,” Chatel said.
