In April of 1996, a renewal license between the cable provider, Cox Cable, and the Town of Weymouth came into effect. This Renewal License provided for the funding of a non-profit organization, Weymouth Educational Telecommunications Corporation, Inc., (WETC) to provide educational television programming for the Weymouth community. In June of 2004, another Renewal License was signed between the Town of Weymouth and Comcast. In this agreement, the non-profit, WETC, expanded its responsibilities to include the management of the public access channel, formerly operated by the cable provider and now called Weymouth Community Access.

WCA’s goals

  • To strive to achieve technically and aesthetically high quality programming
  • To provide sound management and financial strategies to ensure continued community access to and use of the access channel.
