CAT's Justin Gregory to Take on New Job at CCUA

Columbia Access Television's Membership Coordinator, Justin Gregory, will start a new job next week as Office Manager for the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture. Justin's last day at CAT will be Saturday, July 9.                                                   
Justin has worked for CAT for nearly five years and helped build community collaborations with the Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival, KOPN, Rose Music Hall and True/False Film Fest, among many others. Justin also oversaw the purchase of new and improved video equipment, bringing high-def cameras to CAT's nonprofit, business, individual and student members.
Justin said he would stay on as a member/volunteer and would continue to submit new and original video programming to Columbia's public access channel, CAT-TV. We look forward to seeing his work in the coming year. Please help us wish Justin well as he embarks on a new career path.

New Yearly Member Rates -- Effective July 1

For the first time in more than five years, CAT is raising its annual member fees. Membership is going up only $5 per year for individuals, and we've reorganized the group-member discounts. The new fee structure is as follows:

  • $65 per year for individuals
  • $30 discounted annual fee for students, senior citizens & military personnel (IDs are required)
  • $150 discounted group rate for nonprofit organizations (covers up to five people)
  • $250 discounted group rate for businesses and families (covers up to five people)

As always, membership in CAT gives you access to thousands of dollars worth of camera gear, CAT's Edit Suite of fully-loaded iMac computers, media classes, high-def studios, staff support and a community of media producers. New memberships come with a free Field Equipment class, that shows you how to use our check-out Panasonic HD professional camcorders, light kits, microphones, etc. 

Plus, when you join, you show active support of *CAT's mission.

All in all, membership in CAT remains an excellent value, and a great way to build your resume and share your voice with the Columbia community. Join or renew your membership today!

CAT’s Channel is Experiencing Technical Difficulties

The server that runs CAT-TV’s scheduling software is currently experiencing a failed RAID drive, so our channel is temporarily off-air. We are working with our computer support team to help fix the problem ASAP.

We expect to have things back up and running by Friday, July 1. We’ll update everyone right here on the CAT blog.

Thanks for your patience as we work to bring CAT-TV back on air!

Best, The CAT Staff
