Elizabeth serves on the board of the Vermont Access Network, an organization dedicated to the growth and sustainability of access media in the Green Mountains. As the organization continues to grow, she looks forward to the new producers and partners that join in creating a diverse view of the greater St. Albans community through access media.

Paul started at Northwest Access TV in February 2015 coming from his role as the morning producer at Local22/Local44 in Colchester, VT. Before that he was a control room producer for a 24 hour news station based out of Albany, NY. He helped produce live shows, wrote for the web and represented the company softball team in the annual all-star game, twice!
Paul is no stranger to Vermont having graduated from Lyndon State College with a Bachelors Degree in Broadcast Journalism. Paul is excited to be closer home, being a resident of St. Albans and can’t wait to get out in the community to create new programming and help the public bring their show ideas to air. He is also excited for normal sleeping hours. In his time off, Paul enjoys watching sports of all kinds (die hard Boston fan), playing games with his competitive family and barbequing by the pool with his wife.
