Welcome to The Village Green, a new talk show featuring only
the GOOD news happening around the Upper Valley.
Norwich Times publisher, Jen MacMillen, is the host along with the company’s new content manager, Elizabeth Craib, as co-host. Over the coming months, their mission is to discuss a variety of topics with the purpose of shining a light on and promoting the POSITIVE people, places, and events that happen on a daily basis.
The first episode, to air sometime in late December or early January, will focus on the importance of storytelling as a way to connect people, promote community, and foster global tolerance and peace. Interviews with Norwich residents Scott and Lindsay Miller of World Story Exchange, and clips from AVA Gallery’s Mud Room storytelling events will provide insights and examples of how and why sharing our stories is so important on the local and global stages.
The format will be similar to a sports commentating show in that the co-hosts will discuss the month’s topic, and then air previously recorded interviews with individuals and representatives from organizations around the Upper Valley. The pre-recorded interviews will touch on examples relevant to each month’s topic.

goals, and the studio at CATV is a fabulous resource in which to create these
