David M. Fabiano is our Executive Director. He is also our on-site handyman and chief authority on all technical matters. Dave studied at Oswego State University, and started working in Cable Access television in 1981. He worked for the local cable operator as Manager of Local Programming for 12 years, leaving in 1995 when NBCTC was formed. As Executive Director, Dave oversees every facet of our operation, from minding the books and purchasing equipment to working with the Board and interfacing with the community. If you have an idea you'd like to develop into a show, or have a question about NBCTC and how it operates, get in touch with Dave.
No longer the newest staff member, our Office Manager is still the youngest. Nicole (Nickie to her friends) still manages the office (duh!), edits our newsletter, keeps track of our program schedule, keeps our books, and at least attempts to keep Dave and Paul in line. If you have a question about our schedule, have a Public Service Announcement to post on our bulletin board, or want to schedule some studio time, give Nicole a ring.........the phone kind; she's still married, too.
Paul W. Marino, is our Program Director. He studied TV Production at North Adams State College (now MCLA), and volunteered with us for several years before being hired as Training Coordinator. Before being hired, Paul produced several video documentaries, as well as an award-winning local history series; after being hired, he organized and ran our TV Camp program for three years. He continues to train all our volunteers, oversee the programming of our shows for cable casting, and even directs a few shows here and there. If you're interested getting involved at NBCTC, or being a student in one of his workshops, drop a line to Paul.
In her role as Education Coordinator, Joanne has replaced Nicole as the newest member of our staff. Joanne, as her title suggests, coordinates with area schools to produce programming for channel 16, our educational channel. Since she's been on the staff, she's worked with kids in the studio and on location, has taped school plays and games and developed class projects into television shows, and is looking for more! If your school is doing something that ought to be shared with the community, touch base with Joanne.
