Our Mission

Nestled in the heart of the greater Bellows Falls region, Falls Area Community Television stands as a beacon of community engagement and democratic expression. As a non-profit Access Management Organization (AMO), we are unwaveringly dedicated to amplifying the voices within our public, educational, and government sectors. Our state-of-the-art studio at 1 Hospital Court in the Bellows Falls Health Center serves as the epicenter of local storytelling and civic dialogue.

Our mission transcends traditional broadcasting. We empower every member of our community with the tools and platform to produce and disseminate content that matters most to them, through our Public, Educational, and Government (PEG) access channels. With a commitment to inclusivity, we operate on a first-come, first-served, nondiscriminatory basis, ensuring that every voice has an equal opportunity to be heard.

But we aspire to even more. In an era where communication is often reduced to sound bites and tweets, we champion the power of in-depth, local narratives to shape a more informed and connected community. By providing unfettered access to electronic media, we aim to advance democratic ideals and inspire active civic participation.

Join us in this mission. Tune in, participate, and help us build a more vibrant and inclusive community—one story at a time.
