Marin TV Bombed!

A peek at the headlines of this day reveal just how crazy the world was then, a respite perhaps from the surreal days of today. Read the full article and the headlines in the attached pdf below.

Support Marin TV This Holiday Season!

"Giving Tuesday" starts the Holiday Giving Season. Please consider helping us grow Marin TV as a vital source for local media!

The Community Media Center of Marin has been working hard for over 7 years, starting as a scrappy DIY Media Center to become an increasingly vital resource to the residents of Marin. With our Marin TV channels, we are an enabler for government transparency, bringing your local and county government officials right into your living room. Our educational channel gives you learning resources you can’t get elsewhere and provides our schools and students a vehicle for sharing their projects with the community. Our community channel gives everyone in Marin a voice without the threat of censorship. It’s truly the only First Amendment TV. And our media center gives all residents the training they need to produce their own programs with free access to the tools of production and distribution. The center also provides a space where Marin artists come to share their work, films, and voices with the community.
