Volunteering as a member of the Oakland Television Committee can help you reach your highest potential in attaining civic and personal goals. If you have an interest in learning how to produce video programs and use editing software and technical equipment, this committee is for you.
The Cable TV Channel provides public, educational, and local government programming for and about Oakland, NJ. Programming includes televised council meetings and borough proceedings, local events and sports, and a televised bulletin board (run by the Bulletin Board Committee). The Oakland Communications Commission (OCC) had also produced a live show called Exit 58 LIVE! for a few years. If you are not seeing what you would like on our channel, maybe its time for you to fill in that void and produce your own program!
Borough Council meetings are aired daily at 1 A.M, noon, and 7:30 P.M. on the television channel and council meetings are aired live at 7:30pm sharp the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month when the Borough Council has their meetings in Council Chambers.
