On June 1 MATV, Maldens Media were selected as a winner of the Community Impact award, granted to them by the Access Center Professional Division. The award was to commemorate MATVs outstanding community program Malden Reads, a program that was started in 2011. Ron Cox attended the virtual award ceremony with a celebratory drink and the award itself.
During these troubling times, our staff has been thinking and talking about racism, equity through email, phone calls and a virtual Zoom staff meeting. We are a diverse staff that represents different races, cultures, ages and life experiences. Sharing our personal stories, thoughts, and reflections has helped underscore the impact of dialog and “uncomfortable conversations.” As Executive Director of MATV/UMA, I am committed to the ongoing education of our staff on issues of racial and cultural sensitivity, as well as extending that education outward to the community through use of our media channels and programming.
