Learn how to become a Live Producer at CCTV

About 50 live programs are broadcast each week from our studio at 438 Mass Ave. on a diverse mixture of topics, issues, personalities, and content. Shows may involve discussion, music, videos, pictures, and/or anything else you, as producer, dream up.

If you are interested in starting a show, email with questions or to sign up for a free info session.

CCTV's Live shows take place Sundays 4:30pm - 9pm, Mondays through Thursdays 1pm - 9pm; and Fridays 1pm - 6pm. Shows that take place before 4pm are in a 57-minute daytime format; shows that take place after 4pm are in a 27-minute prime-time format. All shows are broadcast on Comcast Channel 9 in Cambridge and also stream live on our website, here. You may also record and save your shows to share via online platforms.
