At the annual volunteer gathering in April, GNAT-TV awarded the 2012 “Gnatty” Award for exceptional volunteerism to Manchester resident, Cathy Stewart. Cathy produces Greater Northshire News (GNN), a regular news and information series that airs on GNAT-TV. The program covers local events, nature topics and human-interest stories happening in the Northshire region. Episodes included coverage such as, talks with Norman Rockwell models, a presentation from Vermont’s Poet Laureate, interviews with Friends of Haystack Mountain, and the recent Manchester 2020 planning process. GNN airs on GNAT-TV at Thursdays, 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., on Channel 15 in Manchester and surrounding towns, Channel 8 in Stratton and Weston, and Londonderry on Tuesdays, 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Cathy is also working on the second installment in a series of documentaries about the Byways of Southern Vermont.
GNAT-TV Executive Director, Tammie Reilly commented, “Cathy’s work is always top quality, informative and entertaining. Cathy is a true friend and supporter of GNAT-TV, not only does she continue to produce award-winning programs, she volunteers on other projects, from cameras and sound, to running errands, to securing much needed production equipment. Cathy’s approach to volunteering has always been, “how can I be of help to the organization, to other GNAT-TV volunteer Producers, and how can I serve my community?” Cathy’s generosity and willingness is what makes her so valuable to GNAT-TV and to our community, we are very lucky to have her involved”.
