In addition, we run a community bulletin board bringing timely announcements from
local governments, hospitals, churches, and other not-for-profit agencies to the
people of the region.
Schopeg personnel teach the techniques of program development and television

encourage and assist trainees in creating local interest television programming to be
televised on our access channels and it’s Internet video on demand site.
