Watch Local. Listen Local. Love Local.

In 2021, I joined the Access Sacramento board of directors to give back to an organization that helped further my career in television broadcasting. As a production assistant I had the opportunity to train and work on the Mobile Truck for Game of the Week, broadcasting high school football and basketball. This opportunity afforded me the skills to enter professional sports broadcasting. In my career I have had the privilege of working on a variety of professional sports broadcasts, airing on networks, such as NBC Sports California, CBS, Spectrum Sports, etc.

 

Access Sacramento is a great organization to obtain skills in both television and radio broadcasting for anyone interested in learning. I encourage any and all members of the community interested in working in broadcasting, with any range of media experience, to become a member of Access Sacramento.

Access Sac offers low-cost media classes and workshops, access to a media lending library, a TV studio, Radio studios, and field equipment so the community can produce shows that are important to them. We also provide a local media distribution network that includes local cable television, radio and internet outlets that are not available to the community through commercial mass media.

Our Mission

Access Sacramento lifts all voices by providing media education and local media platforms to engage the community in public dialogue and showcase creative expression.

Core Values

Access Sacramento's community empowerment mission is based on our inclusive core values.

Inclusion

We value inclusion which is why we provide media training and media distribution channels to the community in order to give access to those who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized for lack of resources.

Originality

We celebrate and encourage originality. It is this independent, unique, creative thought when shared with others  enriches our community.

Diversity

We value diversity. We promote intercultural information and dialog in order to promote social empathy and to bring about a variety of ideas and solutions to communal problems, which better strengthens the community.

Localism

We value our locality, one of the most diverse counties in the country. We uplift our neighbors by capturing and archiving their creativity, their views and their actions on local media. We protect speech locally by providing free speech cable and internet distribution platforms for the community to use.
