GNAT Presents Award for Exceptional Volunteerism
Greater Northshire Access Television (GNAT-TV) has awarded its GNATTY Award for exceptional service to Manchester’s Theo Talcott, a volunteer producer who has hosted and produced two television series since 2012. Bernie Blackout News, his most recent program, began filming in April of 2016, and has 33 episodes to date. He also produced 25 episodes of The Climate Show from 2012 to 2016. He received the award at GNAT-TV’s annual Volunteer Appreciation event last week. According to Tammie Reilly, GNAT executive director, “Theo is committed to using video and television to document current events and our cultural and political climate. He travels far and wide to find true stories and share the human experience with his viewers. GNAT is proud to help facilitate his work by providing the video equipment and technical guidance. We hope that receiving this award encourages him to continue on his journey as a community media maker.”
