MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - The Alliance for Community Media (ACM) has announced HOMTV as a 1st place national award winner in the 2021 Hometown Media Awards. This is the fourth year in a row that HOMTV has been honored with this title.
HOMTV received the “Overall Excellence in Governmental Access” award from the ACM in the $300,000 - $650,000 budget-based division. The Overall Excellence award recognizes access organizations for their overall operational activities and programming efforts.
HOMTV’s Overall Excellence submission included a variety of programs produced by HOMTV staff and interns, while also offering a well-rounded viewing experience for Meridian Township residents. HOMTV strives to create original programs and provide live coverage that is relevant and engaging.
The Hometown Media Awards honors and promotes community media and local cable programs that are distributed on Public, Educational and Governmental (PEG) access cable television channels. Awards are presented to the most creative programs that address community needs, develop diverse community involvement, challenge conventional television formats and move viewers to experience television in a different way.
“It’s an honor to see our hard work and combined efforts recognized at the national level for excellence. Our dedicated staff and interns are proud to provide high quality programming, news and information to the residents of Meridian Township,” said HOMTV Executive Producer Brandie Yates.
The 2021 Hometown Media Awards Celebration will take place virtually on June 30 at 7:00 pm due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
