The Community Media Center of Carroll County, Adelphia Cable Channel 19, is scheduled to break ground today on its home at Carroll County Career and Technology Center.
The center will develop infrastructure connections for the town and county channels and provide training and access to the public, educational and nonprofit groups that wish to learn how to develop programs.
The Adelphia cable station broadcasts local programming produced by volunteers who tape local events and create entertainment and government shows.
The $1.5 million media center will be built near the Career and Technology Center on Washington Road (Route 32) near Kate Wagner Road, on land donated by the county commissioners.
The 12,000-square-foot building will include four edit/work stations, a studio for producing live broadcasts and equipment storage.
The reception and groundbreaking is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. today.
The Career and Technology Center is at 1229 Washington Road, next to Westminster High School.
