NCTV’s "Cafe Community" up for 2 awards

NCTV’s “Cafe Community,” a live weekly news magazine, has been nominated for two awards given by the Alliance for Community Media.

“Cafe Community,” produced and hosted by Nevada County resident Cheryl Noble, is a finalist in the Best Live Show and Best Talk Show categories of the Western Access Video Excellence Awards. The news magazine looks at people, resources, services and nonprofits that make a difference in Nevada County.

Awards will be made Oct. 15 in Sparks, Nev.

“The show is all volunteer, and I couldn’t do it without my dedicated crew who believes in the show’s community outreach,” Noble said. “We have so many valuable local services and residents willing to take care of one another. We’re also fortunate to have NCTV that offers residents a great media platform to showcase a variety of individual programming.”

“Cafe Community” evolved from “Mission: Possible,” started in March 2009 by Gil Dominguez and Touchdown Productions.

Noble was the show’s first guest to promote the launch of the community book swap, and then stayed on with the show as a volunteer. She became the show’s producer and host in fall 2009, and in June of this year, gave the show a facelift and name change.

“I wanted the set to reflect the spirit of our community,” Noble said. “The artwork was done by Rosie Ayala, a Forest Charter School senior with extraordinary talent. … I pulled the look and feel together with original music by Saul Rayo.”

Featuring three guests per week, Cafe Community is a live half-hour program that airs Mondays at 6 p.m. During the program, “Business Moment” features clips of local business people.

Nevada County Television is the county’s local public access television station, broadcasting on Comcast 11 and Suddenlink 16. Programming also streams live at http://www.NevadaCounty
