Redlus Named New LTV Director
He grew up in the studio. A native of East Hampton, Seth Redlus began his career at LTV in the seventh grade. Throughout his high school years, he worked in live production and station operations. Now, he's going to run the place.
Last week Robert Strada, LTV board chair announced Redlus's appointment as executive director.
"This is a pivotal moment for us," Strada said in a release heralding the hire. "The people of East Hampton can expect an exciting new approach to community television under Seth's guidance. He not only brings a wealth of technical knowledge and an impressive portfolio of creativity in video to LTV, but he is part of our history."
"LTV was so much a part of his life growing up, this is a dream come true for him," interim director Genie Henderson enthused.
Redlus, who pursued his MBA at Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, said Friday that he's remained within arm's reach of LTV ever since he left the area to attend school. He hopes to give the public access station "a new fresh look," and produce shows that are relevant to the people of East Hampton. Redlus wants to talk to different segments of the community that aren't currently represented on LTV's two stations. "I want the people of East Hampton to get a bang for their buck," he said.
Next Monday night at 5 p.m. LTV's board of directors will host a live show on channel 20 to introduce Redlus and some of his plans to the community.
