TBT Post

During the Block Party on September 20, 2014, TBT Post at 33 Main Street, Gloucester, MA has a great fun way to win a gift certificate. Richard and Mario have made little candy treats with the colors of the Italian flag for customers. Inside the treat bag is a raffle coupon with a number. There will be no need to fill out the raffle ticket with your name, because when the raffle ticket is picked, Richard and Mario will post the winning numbers at the store. Love this idea.

Tommy Porter in the office talks about his days on the Hannah Bowden.  

One of the great storytellers of our time. 

My dream team for a  reality fishing show- Tommy Porter, Tuffy, bring Carlo Moceri out of retirement, Scrobie, Pete Mondello, Pete Libro back in his crazy days, Mark and Tom Ring.

I’m 46 years old and have been down the dock since I was 9.  To date there was never a better show than when we were offloading Carlo Moceri’s Morning Star.  Inevitably Carlo would lose his shit and start screaming and I’d never seen anyone turn a shade of deeper red in the face than Carlo.  Carlo is one of the most passionate guys you’d ever wanna meet and an awesome guy.

Cape Ann TV’s Field Switcher

Be on the lookout for the Cape Ann TV mobile production van!

This year Cape Ann TV has invested in a portable field switcher that was proudly unveiled at the September 11th Manchester/Essex vs Rockport girl’s field hockey game at Manchester/Essex Regional High School.

This field switcher allows Cape Ann TV to cover more events with multiple cameras and dramatically enhances the production quality. Turnaround time will also increase significantly because games and events will be edited live, right in the van! 

“We are thrilled to bring this powerful new equipment to the community. This is a huge step toward improving the depth and breadth of not just our high school sports coverage, but coverage of all types of events on Cape Ann,” said Executive Director Erich Archer.

If anyone would like to get involved with these productions please contact us at 978.281.2443. Classes are going on now.

The field hockey game will air on Cape Ann TV’s Channel 20 on Friday, September 19th at 3:00 p.m.
