Record a holiday greeting at MATV

Revel in the holiday magic of the season and dust off that old Santa hat. Reserve your spot to record a greeting in MATV’s annual “Holiday Greetings from the Community.” The greetings will play on MATV throughout the holiday season. You can also request an electronic link to your individual greeting that can be shared on social media. Plan to come on down to the MATV studios to sing a song, do a dance, perform a skit, or just spread a few words of holiday cheer. Individuals, organizations, community groups and local businesses are all welcome. Greetings recorded in the MATV studio are free to all Malden community members. If you’d like a greeting recorded off site (in Malden), there is a $10 fee. There is also a $10 fee to provide an electronic link to your individual greeting or a DVD copy. 2014 Holiday Greetings
