WMPA Channel 5 (digtial channel 99.1) is a community access cable television station housed and operated by the Municipality of West Milton. The station has been broadcasting for over 25 years and its programming has consisted of government meetings, community events, school and sporting events, local church events and a variety of other programming. The station is staffed by volunteers who handle all aspects of production including, but not limited to: recording, editing and broadcasting. WMPA is in the process of updating its facilities to a high definition workflow as currently everything is recorded and edited in high definition with the final rendering being in standard definition to allow for broadcast over our cable system. We are looking into obtaining an HD channel from the local cable system.
WMPA also is expanding beyond cable and is embracing the internet and social media as a means to promote the community. Browse WMPA's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/wmpatv and their video channel at www.youtube.com/wmpatv the later features many of our current programs and council meetings.
WMPA is also working with the municipality to add content to its website aimed at promoting the community by attracting businesses and people looking for a place to call home.
