“When Matt Belfiore walked through the door 18 years ago, he sought a new adventure in his life, much like others who got their start here. He felt that maybe if he volunteered, the golden door of opportunity might open a crack.

The site was the Bradford College campus, just across from Denworth Hall. He did an internship with the TV station, then became a production assistant, program director and now operations manager. You can call it a job. More realistically, it’s become his passion.

‘When they moved that Lafayette statue from the rotary, I showed up with a camera on my shoulder,’ Belfiore recalled. ‘There was Barney Gallagher with his camera. I looked at the man and shook my head in amazement. After all these years, there was a guy known by his profession. I’d like to think of myself some day as the Barney Gallagher of Haverhill Community Television. I’ve pretty much done it all around here.'”
