LMC Media

Mission

LMC Media’s mission is to connect, create, and inform the community through the use of digital media”

Larchmont-Mamaroneck Community Television (LMC Media) was founded in 1983 as a non-profit corporation organized under section 501 (C) (3) of the United States Internal Revenue Act. In today’s fast-paced, hyper-connected world, the ability to successfully communicate, create and connect across a range of platforms is a crucial skill set.

Opportunities to develop these skills can be hard to access for many people – LMC Media offers that opportunity to every member of our community.
As a community-based media platform, LMC Media offers every resident the opportunity to learn how to create media content – regardless of their age, gender, financial status, physical or other challenges, or previous experience.
LMC Media fosters relationships and strengthens the social fabric of our community by sharing the talents, the experiences and the creative output of our friends and neighbors and by keeping the entire community informed about the work of our local governments, schools and volunteer organizations. It also provides an opportunity for local businesses to introduce themselves to people who may not have yet discovered them.
LMC Media has the staff and the technical expertise needed to teach our community members how to successfully navigate the ever-evolving world of digital media production.
As a center for teaching and learning, as a highly accessible source of local news and information, as a channel for communication and commentary about the issues that matter most to our community, LMC Media is an invaluable community asset.
The support of our entire community is needed to ensure that LMC Media continues to serve as a gateway to opportunity, as an outlet for the creativity of our residents and as a meeting place for the ideas, opinions and goals that shape the community that we live in and the future that we want to build.

Major funding for LMC Media comes from the Larchmont – Mamaroneck Tri-Municipal Cable TV Board of Control. The Board of Control was organized by the Villages of Larchmont and Mamaroneck, and the Town of Mamaroneck to administer the franchise agreement between the municipalities and Optimum and Verizon – the cable providers for Larchmont – Mamaroneck.

The Board of Control consists of one representative from each municipality plus a Treasurer and Administrator.  The Administrator is the direct liaison with Optimum & Verizon for the three communities handling all complaints and recommendations.

The Board of Control is responsible for collection and disbursement of franchise fees from Optimum & Verizon.  The franchise fees represent 5% of the gross operation revenues of Optimum & Verizon for the Larchmont-Mamaroneck community. The franchise fees support the operations of The Board of Control, which in turn provides the main budget for LMC Media – approximately 85% of LMC Media’s operations budget.  Each year LMC Media must submit a budget request to the Board of Control for discussion and approval.

The Advisory Committee of the Larchmont – Mamaroneck Cable TV Board of Control advises the Board on cable matters affecting our communities.  This includes technical, legal, programming, financial, subscriber and insurance matters relating to the franchise agreement.
