Meet the Staff
For Nathan, it all began here in North Central Massachusetts, specifically at Fitchburg Access Television, with the passion he developed for creative communications.
Attending B.F. Brown Junior-High School in Fitchburg, Nate would volunteer at FATV as a technician during productions of live broadcasts. While utilizing FATV equipment, he was the editor for the senior class video at Fitchburg High School, his Alma Mater. These production experiences were the foundation that helped form the television career Nate continues to enjoy today. Over the past 15 years as a sports camera operator, he’s been a part of broadcasts for the Stanley Cup Finals, Thursday Night Football, Celtics Basketball, Harvard-Yale Football, and the Boston Marathon, to mention a few. He has also been involved with promotional videos, including work for the Molly Bish Foundation, and for various products in the retail industry through social media platforms.
In his spare time, Nate enjoys cooking a delicious meal, making new memories with family and friends, and exploring the outdoors while taking in views that the world has to offer (with a camera in hand!).
Anne coordinates and schedules all programming on our Public, Education and Government channels, as well as Bulletin Board messages for local community announcements. Anne also coordinates equipment checkout for our member producers, and assists in studio productions. Anne came to FATV bringing many years of radio broadcasting experience. She holds a BS Degree in Communications/ Television from Fitchburg State. Travel, books and music are among Anne’s favorite things when she’s not spending time with her family.
Travis oversees the day-to-day technical operations of FATV. He is the Mobile Production Truck 'guru', monitors online streaming and all things technical. His introduction to FATV came in 2005 as a student in Mark Rocheleau's video production class at Sizer Charter School. When the class ended, Travis stayed involved at FATV by volunteering on numerous productions including football, hockey, parades, and various studio shows. In 2009 he was hired as Media Archivist, transferring VHS tapes to DVD and entering the information into the archive database. In 2010 Travis was promoted to Production Technician where he continues to keep FATV’s technical facilities in tip-top shape.
Daniel is a full-time Production Specialist at FATV, having first joined the FATV staff in May 2021. Born and raised in Fitchburg, his first experience with FATV came when he stumbled across an FHS football game as a young boy. From there, he became a regular viewer of FATV’s sports coverage.
Graduating from Monty Tech with a certification in Information Technology, and from Fitchburg State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science (and a Minor in Theater), Daniel was already a familiar face to FATV after first volunteering in 2010 as a fill-in on a Monty Tech football game. Since 2015, he has been a regular on FATV’s sports coverage, a role he continues with since joining the FATV staff, along with video editing, website coordination, and directing many of the government meetings in the City of Fitchburg.
In addition to his contributions to FATV, Daniel has over a decade of experience announcing local sporting events, having called over 500 games in nine different sports. During his time as a student at Fitchburg State University, he contributed on-air and behind the scenes at the Falcon Sports Network, earning the Contributor Award from the Athletic Department in 2016. Thanks to a recommendation from FATV Executive Director Scott May, Daniel began working with WPKZ in Fitchburg in January 2016, where he contributes as a board operator and co-host multiple times a week, while also getting the opportunity to call games all over the region and state. His most notable broadcasts include six ice hockey state championship games from the ninth floor at the TD Garden, a state championship football game from Gillette Stadium, and broadcasting the Fitchburg State Falcons winning the 2018 MASCAC Ice Hockey Championship and qualifying for the NCAA tournament for the first time (broadcast right here on FATV!)
Daniel currently lives in Fitchburg, and his hobbies include listening to music (mainly metal, rock, and new wave), watching sports (from the well-known to the obscure), and learning new things.
Kaitlyn is a current student at Fitchburg State, majoring in Film and Video with a minor in History. She began working with FATV in the Fall of 2021 during the Multi-Camera Television Class. After volunteering, she was hired as a Production Assistant in January 2022, where she assists in sports and meeting broadcasts, as well as with member broadcasts and productions.
A 2020 graduate of Milford High School in her hometown of Milford, Massachusetts, Kaitlyn brings several years of experience in cable access, as she previously interned at Milford TV, where she has also volunteered since 2015. During her time at Milford TV, she has created news packages, covered football games, created documentary style interviews, and helped many members with producing their shows. She has also assisted in several short films and corporate videos. When Kaitlyn is not at FATV, she enjoys exploring new places, rock climbing, and cooking up new recipes when she is not spending time with her friends and family!
