WMCT-TV was started back in 1984 by Prime Cable Company. Back then it was only one station. At first the name was “WMCT channel 30″ which was later changed to “WMCT channel 3.” In 1998 the WMCT name was dropped and “m3″ was born. Then a lineup change with the newest cable comany, Comcast, brought about “m8″. In 2000 we gained another channel. It was named “m10″ until 2004 when it took on the old favorite name of “WMCT”. Current Executive Director, Dan Guindon, was around in the WMCT-TV days and always wanted to keep those call letters!
Today, WMCT-TV consists of two stations; Marlborough Access which broadcasts programs (over local Comcast cable channel 96) created by the public and WMCT which broadcasts programs (over local Comcast cable channel 8 or Verizon channel 34) created by the professional staff at WMCT. With a small, yet strong and dedicated staff, WMCT produces several regular programs, including a weekly newscast! And we are always brainstorming new show ideas!
To provide the residents of Marlborough with a dependable community based view of the city. We strive to supply our viewers with the best possible coverage of local events and politics.
