Greater Somerville Wins SCAT Award

At the jammed packed "2010 Best of SCAT Awards" held at the SCAT studios, I was pleased to accept the Best Hot Set Award for 2009 for "Greater Somerville" from Somerville Community Access Television.

It has been my pleasure over the last year to provide to Somerville viewers and beyond, unique, original content about Somerville people, places and issues. I look forward to bringing you Somerville perspectives from the folks who actually make news, shape our opinions and participate to make things happen.

And you can't get that kind of perspective from reading the link-laden, copy and paste blogs of the day.

To all who have appeared on, called in and watched "Greater Somerville", my sincere thanks for your past and continued support. This award is for you! Thank you.
