Mission East Haven Public Television (ETV) provides public access television programs for the residents, businesses and stakeholders of the town of East Haven.
Background ETV was formed in 1991 by eight residents of the town of East Haven. It received nonprofit approval in 1993. ETV was formed to operate the town's community access TV channels that were provided by the cable television company in the area. The organization is overseen by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. The Board selects Officers annually. Directors and Officers are all volunteers; several part time employees assist by overseeing the day-to-day operations of the studio facility. Studio facilities and production equipment are available for use to all residents of the town.
Impact Tremendous growth has taken place over the past two years. New producers and shows fill the airwaves, new equipment has been added which increases the quality of programming both on the airwaves and online. ETV continues to fulfill its community presence at town events and meetings. ETV is the sole source for broadcasts of town meetings and Town government information for town residents who are unable to participate in person at these events.
Needs ETV is working to increase Board size, membership and staff. This year's board has increased 60% over last year.  The ETV board is working on a new membership drive to increase membership, thereby increasing  donations in 2017. Plans for this financial support include updating equipment, increasing the quality of the online and social media presence, creation of a significant scholarship program for Media/Communications students and community outreach to recruit and train more producers at the high school level and above.
Board Chair Statement ETV enjoys producing coverage of sports, town events, and specific shows created by local producers for our viewers. Our main challenge is finding the resources and personnel to continue this level of valuable programming. We have been reaching out to media students at the high school and college levels both to offer meaningful media internships, and to give them opportunities to videotape in a number of challenging environments. For me personally, television has always been a satisfying creative outlet and a necessary part of our democracy and we're excited to continue to meet those challenges and experience the successes in the years to come. - Jay Miles, ETV Board Chair
