VALLEY VISION is a non-profit 501(c)(3) production company that produces Public, Educational, and Government (PEG) television programming for Conway, Albany, Bartlett, and Fryeburg on channels 3 and 1301. We are funded primarily by cable franchise fees provided by the Town of Conway. We also receive contributions from the towns of Albany and Fryeburg, as well as business sponsors and our members. No part of Valley Vision’s budget is derived from tax dollars.
Valley Vision’s broadcast schedule is available on this website, in addition to the Conway Daily Sun and on the channel 1301 community calendar.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Valley Vision Board of Directors is comprised entirely of unpaid volunteers. Selectmen of each town in our viewing area may choose one individual (“town Rep”) to represent their town on our board.
Several other board members serve as members at large, bringing a wide variety of technical, creative, financial and public service backgrounds to the organization. Prospective members may nominate themselves for election by the existing board.
President: Jeff Flint
Fryeburg Representative: Karla Ficker, Fryeburg
Conway Selectmen’s Representative: Mary Carey Seavey, Conway
Bob Bernhardt, North Conway
Christina Howe, Bartlett
Most of the programming airing on channel 3 comes under the banner of “CCTV”, which stands for Conway Community Television. The content of CCTV is made up of programming for, by, and about the town of Conway.
Current examples of CCTV programming include The Conway Board of Selectmen meetings, as well as those of the Conway Planning Board, North Conway Water Precinct, and Conway Municipal Budget Committee.
Non-municipal programs include Conway Update, Kennett Sports, Conway-area school programming such as concerts and plays, Pawprints, and, of course, Recreation Weekly.
CCTV also broadcasts programming produced by residents of the Conways. Recent programs produced by local residents include “Holiday On Ice”, and The Conway Elementary & Pine Tree School Chorus concert.
Valley Vision stores several cameras for Conway residents to use at their will. The only requirements for taking out such equipment are that you undergo brief training and familiarization with the cameras with our Station Manager, Bill Edmunds, and that all videotaping you do is to air on channel 3 under the CCTV banner.
Valley Vision also produces programming for the towns of Fryeburg and Albany. While this is on a more limited basis than for the Town of Conway, Fryeburg still sees significant air time on channel 3. Examples of Fryeburg related programming include Fryeburg Academy Sports events, graduations, and concerts. Further, we also air the Fryeburg 4th of July parade, town meeting, and Selectmen and other municipal meetings.
