Here you will find a list of our current programs on AFTV with a brief description of the program.
Beyond the Beat
Beyond the Beat takes viewers deeper into Framingham community event coverage with longer profiles and stories of the community organizations and events occurring throughout Framingham. The new format, sans anchors, also provides event coverage in a more timely manner, allowing audiences to enjoy the events as stand-alone segments on AFTV shortly after they are recorded.
Musicians and musical artists from Framingham and the MetroWest area perform here at AFTV studios.
Concert on the Common
Coverage of the weekly Concerts on the Common, held during the summer months on Friday evenings on the Framingham Centre Common by the City Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs Department.
Novel Ideas introduces the viewer to the dozens of Framingham authors, and others from MetroWest. Multitalented Josh Brogadir, WCVB sportscaster, book narrator, and actor and Carol Lynn Luck, Framingham author, co-host this program. In the informal living room setting, our viewers get to know local authors: who they are and what they write. These writers share their stories and advice. Our award-winning guests have included Erica Ferencik (an Oprah #1 pick--The River at Night), Josh Funk (amazing and prolific children’s book author) Ray Daniel (the Tucker mysteries), Carrie H. Johnson (Hot Flash and more), Laura Woollett (Big Top Burning) and Erin Dionne (seven great middle grade novels).
