Lights, camera, action! If these words sound like music to your ears, launch your television career locally at Batavia Access Television (BATV)! As a community based organization, BATV offers a number of opportunities for citizens, community organizations, and youth clubs to become involved. BATV currently organizes community volunteers for most productions, and as BATV volunteerism increases, so do the events recorded and broadcast. If you are interested in broadcasting, sports commentary, talk show hosting, voice-overs, live sports broadcasts, video editing, or anything else related to television production, please contact us! We have lots of projects for people to work on.


Attend a Producer Certification Session (they are FUN and FREE!)

Now is the best time to become a BATV certified producer! Currently all it takes is 90 minutes of your time to meet at the BATV studio. You will tour the facilities, complete a producer profile, and receive a copy of the station’s policies and procedures. It doesn’t get much easier than that! Producer certification sessions are available upon request; simply contact BATV to register.
