The mission of LMCTV is to strengthen our community by providing the supportive environment and facilities necessary to encourage freedom of speech, public dialogue and artistic expression that reflect the diverse interests and needs of the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Community.
Larchmont-Mamaroneck Community Television (LMCTV) was founded in 1983 as a non-profit corporation organized under section 501 (C) (3) of the United States Internal Revenue Act. In today’s fast-paced, hyper-connected world, the ability to successfully communicate, create and connect across a range of platforms is a crucial skill set.
Opportunities to develop these skills can be hard to access for many people – LMCTV offers that opportunity to every member of our community.
As a community-based media platform, LMCTV offers every resident the opportunity to learn how to create media content – regardless of their age, gender, financial status, physical or other challenges, or previous experience.
LMCTV fosters relationships and strengthens the social fabric of our community by sharing the talents, the experiences and the creative output of our friends and neighbors and by keeping the entire community informed about the work of our local governments, schools and volunteer organizations. It also provides an opportunity for local businesses to introduce themselves to people who may not have yet discovered them.
LMCTV has the staff and the technical expertise needed to teach our community members how to successfully navigate the ever-evolving world of digital media production.
As a center for teaching and learning, as a highly accessible source of local news and information, as a channel for communication and commentary about the issues that matter most to our community, LMCTV is an invaluable community asset.
The support of our entire community is needed to ensure that LMCTV continues to serve as a gateway to opportunity, as an outlet for the creativity of our residents and as a meeting place for the ideas, opinions and goals that shape the community that we live in and the future that we want to build.
Board of Directors
LMCTV is governed by an eleven member Board of Directors that meet monthly to determine company policy, provide support and guidance to the Executive Director, and help raise funds for the operation of the organization. The Board of Directors is composed of community members chosen by itself.
Board of Control
Major funding for LMCTV comes from the Larchmont – Mamaroneck Tri-Municipal Cable TV Board of Control. The Board of Control was organized by the Villages of Larchmont and Mamaroneck, and the Town of Mamaroneck to administer the franchise agreement between the municipalities and Optimum and Verizon – the cable providers for Larchmont – Mamaroneck.
LMCTV produces annual reports yearly, describing the current state of the station, upcoming projects, and long-term plans.
