Hosted by DigBoston’s features editor and Boston Institute of Non-Profit Journalism (BINJ) co-founder Chris Faraone, BEYOND BOSTON is a monthly news magazine collaboration spotlighting the reporting from regional community access centers including BIG in Brookline, CCTV in Cambridge, MATV in Malden and SCATV in Somerville.
The pilot episode, produced by MATV’s Sam Baltrusis and SCATV’s Erica Jones, is airing on multiple public access stations in August 2016.
“As BINJ moves into its second year, you will see lots of vids and podcasts and more. Starting with ‘Beyond Boston,’ a monthly showcase (hosted by me and the BINJ crew, produced by Sam Baltrusis of Malden Access Television and Erica Jones of SCATV in Somerville) of the best content that community access stations around Boston have to offer,” Faraone said.
“There are more than 100 such stations in Mass alone, and this is an effort to get a whole bunch of them on the same page. Alternative and community news outlets can have a big impact, but only when we work together like this,” he continued.
