Simsbury Community Television (SCTV) announced today that former Simsbury First Selectman Mary A. Glassman, ESPN Producer Andrew Green, and retired teacher and former DAR chapter regent Deborah Payne have joined the Simsbury Community Television Board of Directors.
In announcing their appointments, Simsbury Community Television Board President Althea Greaney said, “We are delighted to welcome three such experienced professionals and volunteers to our board. I am confident that they will make enormous contributions to our work of keeping the town informed. “
Green who is a baseball producer at ESPN and has lived in Simsbury since 2010 is looking forward to helping SCTV recruit and train more students and parents in town to expand SCTV’s coverage of high school sports.
