Before getting involved with Public/ Education/ Government access television, Zeb was building his career as a freelance videographer and editor. He worked on various small projects locally with his creative approaches to problem solving and resource management. With that experience he brought a seasoned approach to commercial video production when he began working for Schenectady public access television; currently know as OSM. As the production coordinator, he realized the precedence for free local speech and became determined to set his focus on giving his community a profound public access station. In 2008, Zeb became the Station Manager, and then later the Station Director, leading the way in establishing the new station facility within Proctors and rebranding the channel. Zeb currently serves on the board of directors for the Alliance for Community Media: New York Chapter, and as the co-chair of the Alliance for Community Media: Northeast Region.
Assistant Station Manager
With a background in both visual arts and communications, Jeremy began his professional video career working for broadcast TV news stations in his hometown of Rochester, NY. A love of music and performing soon found him working behind-the-scenes and onstage for theaters throughout New York State and New England. In 2000, Jeremy began an 18 1/2-year tenure with the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA, where he served as a chief spokesperson, writer, photographer, and media producer – he went on to film hours of interviews with Norman Rockwell’s family, models, and contemporary illustrators, which resulted in award-winning videos, as well as important documents for the Museum’s archives. While in the Berkshires, Jeremy also worked with community access station CTSB-TV, where he further honed his skills both in front of and behind the camera. This background and love for visual storytelling, community action, and the arts has served him well since joining OSM and the Proctors Collaborative in the Fall of 2021.
