As of February 7, 2023, MVCC’s vast (and awesome) music catalog license with De Wolfe Music has been modified to include additional music rights in productions available for podcasting. For producers, this means you can now go to www.dewolfemusic.com to find tracks for your show that MVCC staff can download for your use. Podcasting Rights means the right to make the Productions available as a multimedia digital file, available via the internet for downloading to a portable media player, computer, or mobile device.
Why should you create a podcast at MVCC? A 2022 Edison Research study indicated that YouTube is the top platform for podcasting listening, followed by Spotify. (Source: searchenginejournal.com) And look at that – you get a video and audio podcast version when you make a show at MVCC. Plus, you connect with local viewers across the Miami Valley thanks to the MVCC channels.
Help your podcast get found in search engines! Titles and descriptions matter when users go to find or browse for shows. For example, don’t make a show called, I don’t know, The MVCC Podcast, which doesn’t explain much to a listener. Camera in Hand: stories of public access television? Better! Need some ideas to get started? Remember that specific topics and interesting viewpoints will help build an audience. Find your angle.
And finally, some production tips for MVCC’s podcast center: you can adjust the wall background colors with the remote; move the web camera around if you need to (and staff can put the camera on a tripod for three or four guests); if the audio doesn’t sound great during the mic check, let us know – occasionally the noise reduction and other effects are switched off on the RODECaster Pro.

Miami Valley Communications Council is a municipal communications and technology organization representing the eight member cities of Centerville, Germantown, Kettering, Miamisburg, Moraine, Oakwood, Springboro and West Carrollton. The council also has affiliate agreements with other Miami Valley cities. MVCC was formed in 1975 as a council of governments to monitor, regulate, and administer common cable television franchise agreements, manage the operation of the council's cable access television channels, and develop and implement intergovernmental projects designed to strengthen communications between member cities and their citizens. A policy-making body consisting of delegates representing member cities governs the council.
MVCC is funded through franchise fees paid by the cable service provider. Franchise fees are rent that the cable company pays for placing its wires over or under the public rights-of-way (streets.) MVCC uses these franchise fees to support its community access television activities, cooperative intergovernmental projects, and to explore new and changing technologies that will benefit member communities. The council, in turn, provides many services to our communities at little or no cost.
