Mad River Glen Today

Published On January 12, 2019

Mad River Glen is collaborating with Mad River Valley Television to produce a brand new live TV program airing weekly from General Stark’s Pub. The show, Mad River Glen Today, serves as a platform to share the Mad River Glen community with the rest of the world. The program illuminates what’s going on at MRG in a fun way, leveraging a format that is sort of a mash-up of a late night TV show, Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood and Wayne’s World.

The show is hosted and produced by Eric Friedman, Mad River Glen’s Marketing Director, and features Musical Director, Rob Pierce HMFC, “sidekick”  Dougie “Fresh” Barnes and a recurring cast of characters.

“Mad River TV is a tremendous local resource and we are excited to utilize unconventional avenues like this to tell the Mad River Glen story” says Friedman. MRG Today is broadcasted live every Thursday morning at 10 AM to Mad River Glen’s Facebook page and MRVTV’s YouTube channel. It is also re-broadcasted to Channels 44 (SD) and 244 (HD) on Waitsfield Cable and is licensed for re-broadcast to the 24 other public access TV centers across
the state of Vermont.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Mad River Glen on this new show. We are both community oriented organizations and we are excited to leverage the power of two live social media platforms to help Mad River Glen communicate stories and information in creative ways,” said Keith Berkelhamer, Executive Director of the station.

The show is being sponsored by Mehuron’s Market and Fat-ypus Skis.
