Cablecast Community Media, a division of Tightrope Media Systems, is to provide live coverage of the 2023 Hometown Media Awards on June 28 on Hometown TV, a new public internet channel being launched through the Cablecast Streaming App.

The Hometown Media Awards ceremony is part of the Alliance for Community Media 2023 Conference, which runs June 27-29 at BRIC Media Arts in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The annual awards program of the Foundation of the ACM, the Hometown Media Awards promotes and honors standout producers in community media and community radio who utilize Public, Educational, and Governmental (PEG) access channels to get their message to their local community. All award winners have been invited by Cablecast, the Celebration Sponsor of this year's awards program, to add their videos to the new Hometown TV channel.

"With Hometown TV, we're connecting a nationwide network of producers around a common love of hyper-local media," said Steve Israelsky, president, Cablecast Community Media. "Hometown TV will allow winners and fans alike to watch and share the award-winning work on a platform that's free to download and that never puts ads on their content. We're proud to elevate this body of work and support the mission of the Foundation for the Alliance for Community Media."

Nearly 1,000 entries are submitted to the HMA program each year, resulting in more than 100 award winners. A panel of industry judges evaluates the entries, and awards are presented to the most creative programs that move viewers to experience television in a different way. Proceeds from the awards program will go to the ACM Foundation, which is exclusively used for facilitating, preserving, and promoting education in community media.

"The Hometown Media Awards are special to the community media industry, because they celebrate outstanding work in the field and bolster our capacity to cultivate thriving local media in the future," said Mike Wassenaar, president and CEO of the ACM and its Foundation. "It's a national movement to support hyper-local dialogue and creativity.”
