SAM Seeking Volunteers

Southborough Acess Media is looking for volunteers to make content or join the Board

Above: Do you have an idea for a show to create for the public access channel (and online streaming)? That’s one of the ways volunteers can get involved in SAM. (scroll down for image credits)

Southborough Access Media asked me to share their call for volunteers. There are two avenues for people who want to get more involved.

SAM’s Executive Director Terry Underwood asked me to share:

Do you live or work in Southborough? Have an idea for a show and would like to receive training to make it happen? Becoming a member is easy, inexpensive and a way to give back to the community. Training is scheduled and at no cost.

Want to be involved with guiding SAM? The Board of Directors is seeking to have additional people serve on the Board.

SAM takes great care to cover and produce shows, meetings and events that provide access to information, entertainment and educate the community on what is going on. Southborough Access Media studio and offices are located in Trottier Middle School and serve current and past students of the school. Students who enroll in the classes, receive training on using the equipment and learn etiquette in the studio, producing shows. Past students have been involved in helping to cover events and meetings, with their skills, as they continue to develop a curiosity and learn in the field.

Questions? Contact SAM!

Anyone interested is encouraged to email Terry Underwood at

Underwood told me that SAM has been busy behind the scenes. I asked for some examples of what they have been up to. It included technical updates to software and hardware, plus installation of new equipment in the Town House meeting room. (They eventually hope to be able to incorporate zoom meetings into their live streamed recorded meetings in the hearing room. But that is still down the pike with more work and testing to be done.)

Producer Trevor Dillman has also been busy working with a 6th and 7th graders on a project for Trottier Middle School. (Due to privacy issues, that will only be screened in school.)
