It has come to our attention that Cox Communications recently updated their channel lineup. This update has caused some customers in Falls Church City to now receive Fairfax programming on channel 12 instead of FCCTV. To resolve this issue, you must call Cox and have them reset your box.
We are also currently working with Cox to resolve this issue. If you have experienced this problem, please call FCCTV at 703-248-5692.
We would also appreciate it if people spread the message to their friends and neighbors so that everyone can continue to enjoy the programming on Channel 12.
If you have any questions, feel free to call the station at 703-248-5692.

Bob Morrison never left home without a camera. He knew that today might bring the shot of a lifetime and he always wanted to be prepared to capture it if he could.
From athletic events to City festivals, Bob could often be seen capturing the spirit of The Little City with a still or video camera and encouraging others to do the same. Bob’s extraordinary photographs are often showcased in art shows, schools, and businesses throughout the City.
All of us lost a great talent and good friend when Bob passed away in 2009. He was a selfless contributor of his time and talent to Falls Church City charities, an enduring friend of FCC-TV, and a long-term member of the Falls Church City Cable Access Corporation Board.
It is in his memory that the Board of Directors established the Bob Morrison Prize for Photography and Videography to encourage students to capture images of Falls Church City - My Hometown.

I am happy to announce that Falls Church City Television will be holding two production workshops in the month of July. This is a great opportunity to obtain the skills necessary for producing programming at FCC-TV, whether it is for yourself or for those interested in helping you produce your program.
The first workshop will be for Studio Production and will take place on Saturday, July 24th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The second workshop will be for Field Production and will be on Saturday, July 31st from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. as well.
The Studio Production workshop will feature a basic overview of television production in a studio setting. Subjects include: lighting; studio camera operation; audio; directing; technical directing; and on-air talent.
The Field Production workshop will feature a basic overview of television production in remote locations. Subjects include: lighting in the field; audio; field camera operation; on-camera reporting; storytelling; and tripod use.
There are a limited number of spaces for each workshop. Should there be enough interest, however, we will schedule more workshops in August.
There are also a few changes to the workshops that you will need to take note of.
First, the fee for the workshops has increased to $50 for members and $60 for non-members. We accept cash and/or checks made out to FCCAC (Falls Church Cable Access Corporation).
Second, fees will be due when you sign up for the workshop. Spots cannot be held for individuals until they have paid the appropriate fee.
Feel free to pass this information along to friends and neighbors. And I look forward to your help in making FCC-TV grow.

On Tuesday, April 20th, the League of Women Voters held a candidate forum at Falls Church City Hall. This forum was provided to the public as an opportunity to hear from the individuals running for seats on the Falls Church City Council. This event aired live on FCC-TV, but if you missed it you are in luck.
Repeats of the forum will air on the station leading up to election day. However, if you just can't wait, click here for archived version online.
