TV Santa Barbara, Debbie and Wade Nomura, Tina Love and Erik Davis won a first-place award for their magazine show “Carpinteria Living” at last week’s Alliance for Community Media West Region’s annual conference and trade show. “Carpinteria Living,” which airs on Channels 17 and 71, highlights the Carpinteria Valley’s restaurants, stores, local attractions and residents. 

TV Santa Barbara hosted the annual conference and WAVE Awards show, which saw attendees from California, Hawaii, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Nevada. Across the 17 award categories, TV Santa Barbara took home six awards. 

“We were very excited to participate in this important conference, which supports diverse community voices, through Public, Educational and Government Access channels and other forms of media,” said Davis, executive director of TV Santa Barbara. “The event showcased the important work that media access centers provide communities lucky enough to have them.”
