Eileen Mason

Eileen Mason

Video Reporter, Community Connection
Video reporter for LMC-TV since 1983. An early practitioner of community access, I got my reportorial inspiration from John Alpert who singlehandedly covered news events for NBC-TV in the 1970s and 1980s.  He got his start at another community access station, Downtown Community Television, near Canal Street in Manhattan.  Over the last 25 years you have probably seen me setting up a tripod and camera somewhere in our tri-municipality to bring you local news and events, parades and memorials, all broadcast from LMCTV.
