INDEPENDENCE TWP. — Independence Television was recently recognized by Alliance for Community Media Foundation and received the 2024 Hometown Media Award.
The national award recognizes Independence Television’s station’s overall excellence in serving the residents Independence Township, City of the Village of Clarkston and Springfield Township in Public, Education and Government broadcasting. This is the first time Independence Television has been recognized with this award since forming in 2013.
“I get to see all the work our staff puts in every day to serve our communities by giving up nights, weekends and holidays to broadcast the number of local events, meetings and sports to our residents. These are some of the most talented people in this profession and to be recognized as one of the best community television stations in the country is very humbling. I could not be happier for our staff to be recognized for all their hard work,” said John Ehlke, Station Manager for Independence Television.
The ACM Foundation awards program was established to honor and promote community media, community radio, and local cable programs that are distributed on Public, Educational and Governmental (PEG) access cable television channels.
Each year, nearly one thousand entries are submitted. These entries, or programs, are submitted and evaluated on several factors resulting in over 100 award winners. A panel of over 150 judges from the industry evaluate the entries. Awards are presented to the most creative programs that address community needs, develop diverse community involvement, challenge conventional commercial television formats, and move viewers to experience television in a different way.
