WBRW TV Channel 6 and Michigan Community Media held their first Volunteer of the Year banquet on December 16, 2014. Over fifty guests attended representing Channel 6, Bruce Township, Washington Township, and Romeo. Five volunteers were nominated by their peers: Monique Maksym, John Swan, Joe Distelrath, Andrew Welch, and Fred Zirotte.
The winner of the 2014 Volunteer of the Year was Fred Zirotte. Fred was chosen based on his time dedicated to the community television station, his passion for his work, his willingness to help and his creativity on his many projects that he worked on. Fred was honored with a trophy and a $100 gift certificate donated by a local restaurant.
We encourage more community groups, students and residents to get involved at WBRW TV. We offer classes in camera, studio, and editing to get you started and lots of support to keep you engaged. WBRW and Michigan Community Media plan to make this event annual.
