After nearly five years at NewTV, our energetic Director of Production Services, Melinda Garfield, will be taking on new challenges at Westwood Community Access Television (WestCAT) in Westwood, MA. Melinda has been an important part of NewTV’s growth since she joined our team in September 2011. Melinda has been an integral player in creating a new area of alternative revenue with the launch of NewTV Production Services, where she helped create and execute award-winning videos for major companies and nonprofits throughout Greater Boston.
In addition to her stellar work at NewTV, Melinda provided industry insight and creative direction while making NewTV’s voice heard through her leadership role at MassAccess. Through MassAccess, she has helped keep the community media and production services industries informed and connected, a mission she will continue to explore while at WestCAT.
“I know the skills I have learned at NewTV have prepared me for this new and exciting next step in my career,” said Garfield. “My Production Services experience has allowed me to stretch creatively and refine my project management experience, and I am certainly looking forward to the new challenges that WestCAT will provide. Most of all, I’ll miss working daily alongside my NewTV family, a team of dedicated and talented individuals who have each taught me greatly about various aspects of the industry.”
Garfield will be leaving NewTV on January 12, 2016. All NewTV Production Services questions can be directed to Andrew Eldridge, co-director of Original Programming at NewTV ([email protected]).
We wish Melinda the best of luck in her new position in Westwood, and invite you to do the same.
