Andre Vanterpool, Westbury Arts Center 2024.

North Shore TV once again received a 2024 Hometown  Media Award from the Alliance for Community Media Foundation. The 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. Proceeds go to the ACM Foundation which is exclusively used for facilitating, preserving, and promoting education in community media. 

The Alliance for Community Media (ACM) Overall Excellence Award is a prestigious accolade that  recognizes exceptional community media organizations for their outstanding achievements in public,  educational, and government (PEG) access programming. These awards celebrate the creative efforts,  technical skill, and community impact of media centers that produce content reflecting the diverse  voices and interests within their communities. 

“We are deeply honored to receive the Alliance for Community Media’s Overall Excellence Award. This prestigious recognition is a testament to the hard work, creativity, and dedication of our incredible team, volunteers, and community supporters.”, said North Shore TV’s Executive Director, Erica  Bradley. 

“This award is not just a reflection of our efforts but a celebration of the vibrant, diverse voices that make up our community. Community media plays a crucial role in fostering free speech, promoting civic engagement, and providing educational resources. Being recognized for our contributions  underscores the importance of our mission and the impact we strive to make every day. Special 

thanks to our volunteers and partners whose collaboration and support have been invaluable. Together, we will continue to create, innovate, and make a difference in our community.” 

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. 

“The Hometown Media Awards celebrate both the excellence of work and the diversity of media that  appears on community channels being produced around the country. The ACM Foundation is proud of  their achievement and of how they represent their communities in their work,” said Mike Wassenaar,  president & CEO, Alliance for Community Media.
