What's new on Channel 16?
Residents in the Town of Guilderland may have recently noticed that Channel 16, operated out of the Guilderland High School Media Department, has undergone a bit of an overhaul. While the programming on the station may look a bit different, you can still find all of the important school information that the community has come to expect. However, the programming schedule will change slightly to accommodate new titles. Viewers may notice that the music track is no longer WMHT; instead, the music is now courtesy of students in the GCSD music department. In addition, the station is now featuring artwork and photography by students, as well. If you haven't seen it already, we invite you to take a look at the new Channel 16...enjoy!
