Community Television gets new director

WESTMINSTER -- After a four-month search, Carroll Community Television will have a new director on Oct. 8.

Michael Hannon, who will replace former director Paul LeValley, will coordinate the programming and production of shows for Carroll Community Television, Channel 55. In addition, Mr. Hannon will be expected to train new volunteer producers in creating programs for the channel.

Mr. LeValley, who had worked with CCTV since its inception in

1989, left in June for a job with Arlington Community Television in Virginia.

"It's pretty much what I've been doing since I was in school," Mr. Hannon said from his Virginia home Friday. "I don't feel nervous and I don't think I'm going to have any trouble becoming accustomed to how they run things up there."

The new director, a 1987 graduate of the University of Iowa, was chosen from a field of 20 in a panel interview process. Micki Smith, deputy director of the public information office, made the final selection, which was approved by the county cable committee last week.

In addition to being excited about the facility and the people in Westminster, Mr. Hannon said he's also looking forward to working full-time again.

Previously employed by the Multimedia communications conglomerate in Chicago, Mr. Hannon has been working part-time as a news photographer with WYVN in Martinsburg, W.Va., and training volunteer producers for Montgomery County Community Television in Rockville since January.

The new director said he plans to settle in Carroll before he starts work next week.
