What Does the Media Center Do?

THE PURPOSE

The Kiowa County Media Center has entered the blogosphere! One of the most frequent questions we hear is, “What does the Media Center do?” In short, we provide technology services, education, and tools throughout the state of Kansas at affordable rates. The more detailed answer will take some time to explain, so we decided to keep everyone updated with a blog.

THE TEAM

Let me begin by introducing our staff! My name is Cassie Gamble, and I am the Finance and Marketing Manager. I handle bookkeeping and create material that promotes who we are and what we do as an organization. Since joining the Media Center, I’ve also added media conversion, basic video editing, and now blogging to my duties.

Our Creative Director, Grant Neuhold, has been with the Media Center since it opened in 2010. He wears many hats, but his main focuses are video production, editing, and live event streaming.

Our production assistant, Jonah Sowa, joined us late last year. He can handle whatever you throw at him, whether it be graphic design, producing video, or editing footage. We are excited to see how his role at the Media Center grows over time.

Casey Roberts is our live event specialist. He is always looking for ways to improve our broadcasts and does so by implementing new ideas, such as adding a wireless camera to allow us to stream directly to our YouTube channel. We also call on Casey for his professional photography skills.

Volunteers are also a major asset to the Media Center. Students and community members generously give their time to help with broadcasts and events.

THE LOCATION

The Kiowa County Media Center is located in the heart of Greensburg, Kansas. We love providing technology services to locals at affordable rates so they can do business right here at home. In many cases, we are the only ones who do what we do for hundreds of miles! However, we don’t stop at the county line. We are proud to serve not only southwestern Kansas, but also the entire state.

We are fortunate to call the Kiowa County Commons Building our home. Our offices are located on the second floor, don’t hesitate to come up for a visit! In addition to our workspace, we have a fully outfitted computer lab, HDTV production studio, production trailer, and conference room.
