This week's blog is from Scott Kurland, who, along with Lisa Kapala, has been working with Mark on Podcasting for the past couple of months.
Mark Ryan is a renaissance man around town. He serves on the Board of Commissioners at the Buzzell Senior Center, he's a volunteer here at WCTV, and he's an accomplished author. Mark started out at WCTV about a year ago submitting his videos from various senior center outings. From there he started to come in regularly to operate cameras, learn editing, and attends our monthly "Media Meet-Ups." Yet it was Mark's latest novel "Escape North," that inspired him to get into podcasting here.
"Mark's Musings" is a new podcast created by Ryan to be a hybrid of audiobook readings, author interviews, and an in-depth look at his writing process. Mark knew very little about podcasting, and came to us to show him how to do it. From their, Lisa Kapala and I sat down with him, showed him how to record in the audio studio and he hit the ground running. Mark is a prime example of a WCTV success story.
Like Mark, anyone can come to WCTV learn any or all aspects of production and create your own content. Whether it is a podcast, a show, PSAs, or training we can give you the tools you need to create something to be proud of. Great job Mark, and we hope to see you all down at the station!
