Shorts! Shorts! Shorts!
We usually receive programs that are
from between 30 minutes and 2 hours. However in the last six months MTN
has received an INFLUX of programs just over the 30 second mark.
THANKS! MTN is ready for all kinds of your programming and a minute is
just as important as 30. Don't forget that if you are a non-profit or
know of a non-profit that could use some airtime to talk about an
upcoming project or event, MTN offers a great deal with our Studio C.

The programming department has
received so many new Stand-Alone programs this year and it is GREAT! We
love receiving programs for Series slots on our channels but there
really is something special about a Stand-Alone.
With a Stand-Alone you are open to turn in everything from a SHORT to a
2 hour program about your favorite topic. Keep sending those
Stand-Alones our way, we are always awaiting your latest project!
