Zebulon Schmidt

Station Director

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 ​R​egion.
