Community Media of South Central PA is a non-profit community media group. Our organization is dedicated to informing the people of our area about the news, events, and activities happening in and around our community. Operating since 1988, we have provided quality programming to our local community keeping the focus right here in South Central Pennsylvania. We collaborate with our community partners from all across Adams and York County to provide news and information on a variety of local activities. Community Media is excited to serve our community in a new and innovative ways, while constantly striving to improve our current programming. Our focus is our local public, education, and our local governments.
We not only serve our viewers in the community, but we also serve the individual and/or organization we work with. It is an outlet for Non-profit organizations to make people aware of what services they provide, and the needs of their organization. School districts can have their students produce different mediums to air on our station, as well as show their scholastic and athletic events. Our government officials can communicate to their constituents on any relevant topic they see fit, let the viewer see how their local government really works, and the viewer gets a chance to learn who their political appointees are. Community Media can help event organizers promote their events so that the community can have a better perspective of what the event is all about. Local athletics shown on our station highlight the athletes and there schools. Businesses in our community can inform the public of there involvement in our local area. It is not only Community Media that benefits from what we do, nor is it just the organization we are working/partnering with, nor is it just the viewer. It is everyone in our local community.
