“CCM: All Access” Continues Weekly Production by Students

CCM All Access CrewThe Alex DeCroce Media Center at County College of Morris (CCM) will begin its fourth season of “CCM: All Access,” a weekly television show, airing on Morris Educational Television (METV) on Mondays at 9 a.m., then at 3 p.m. and again at 9 p.m.

“We are thrilled to be able to continue the show and provide students with this real-world project,” said Professor Julian Costa, executive producer of the program. “What makes this even more exciting is that our returning crew members are truly coming into their own as leaders.”

Brenda Todd, of Randolph, is a sophomore majoring in broadcasting arts and technology who has rejoined the production team. “Now in our fourth season, we have developed a dedicated core group of people who are committed to the success of the show,” said Todd. “We are having a lot of fun as we continue to learn and explore new ideas. We welcome any students at CCM to join us who have an interest in television production.”

Daniel Giordano, a sophomore majoring in business administration from Fairfield, will begin his second semester as one of the show’s student hosts. Giordano had previously served as a camera operator and audio technician for the program. “I’m so excited for this opportunity,” Giordano said, “It’s truly a pleasure getting to come in every week and learn something from our school’s brightest and best.” The program is entirely a volunteer effort.

Other student crew members include Daniil Barkov, a sophomore majoring in business administration from East Hanover, and Matthew Sinnott, a sophomore majoring in criminal justice from Randolph.

Costa, an adjunct professor of business and communication, designed the program to provide students with a realistic experience in television production. Daniel Cleary, television engineer at CCM, works with Costa on the show each week. “It’s great to be starting our fourth season of shows,” said Cleary. “Julian really knows how to keep the ball rolling and has done a great job at getting guests each week. It’s always good to highlight the talent we have on campus with our faculty and staff.”

“CCM: All Access” airs on METV, viewable on Channel 40 Fios and Channel 77 Optimum, at 9 a.m., 3 p.m., and 9 p.m. every Monday. Future guests include Najib Iftikhar, assistant professor of business and hospitality management; Shannon Lengares, executive director of the Women’s Center; and Dr. John Marlin, vice president for academic affairs.
