Staples Television Network Debuts With Football Coverage

WestportNow.com Image
UPDATE Today’s coverage of the Staples-Norwalk football game marked the debut of the Staples Television Network (STN) on Cablevision Channel 78, the educational public access channel. STN simulcast coverage by WWPT, 90.3 FM, the student-run station at the Westport high school. Pictured (l-r) are Eric Gallanty (play-by-play), DJ Sixsmith (color commentary), and Bobby Shea (statistician). They were aided by Sam Bender on camera and Brandon Edelson, who directed the broadcast. STN, which kicked off at noon with a pre-game show, was created by Brandon and plans to add more community programming, including a local news show. The next STN-WWPT simulcast will take place on Oct. 17 when Staples meets McMahon of Norwalk at home. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WestportNow.com photo

An application is in process to acquire a permit to demolish the house at 6 Elwil Drive, off Westport’s Roseville Road. Built in 1950, the 1-3/4-story colonial has 2,240 square feet and is situated on a one-acre property on a cul-de-sac.
