GREENFIELD — Tensions have been brewing for a year between city and Greenfield-Central school officials over broadcasting city meetings, but a new era of sorts has come to the high school broadcasting program as the partnership has splintered.
School officials have been scrambling to figure out how to move forward with the school’s radio and television programs after the city council last year decided to drastically slash funding to the school.
While the city’s public-access channel, GCTV, went dark Sunday, the school has turned to an entirely new format in getting its programs out to the public: live streaming online.
Starting today, local residents can go to the G-C website and view all of the announcements and TV shows they were used to seeing on Channel 19. They can even watch tonight’s football game live.
“Streaming is a whole new way of using the technology we already have,” said G-CHS Principal Steve Bryant.
