#BrightSideBerks Call for Community Media


Mar 26, 2020

Citizens of Berks County, please share the ‘silver linings’ of your current situation!

While staying home or safely distanced from one another, many have found time to appreciate ‘the little things’…digging into a project, quality time at home, or exploring the great outdoors.

Share your current videos and/or photos with us! Drop them at this link:


How is your neighborhood keeping spirits high? Did you take a great snapshot while hiking? See some signs of spring in the garden? Are the kids/pets keeping you entertained? Have you created or cooked something wonderful? Maybe you have a motivating message to share with others!

What snippet of positive inspiration can you offer our community today? #BrightSideBerks

The sky is the limit – Let’s share some good vibes with one another.

We will create a daily montage of the content we receive and launch a feature at noon each weekday on our social media, website and on BCTV starting Monday, March 29.


Just click this link:

A web browser will open up with a Dropbox page that says “Joan Freeman wants you to add files”, “Media Submissions”. Below the image of the hands clasping is a blue button asking you to Choose Files. Click it. Then you can browse to find the video or image on your phone or computer that you want to share. Add your name and email address, then click upload. Once it’s done uploading, you’ll get a message saying “Thanks! You’re all done.”

If you are sharing video, we ask that you keep it under one minute. We prefer landscape mode (shot horizontally), but it’s not necessary.

For those of you with iPhones, you will probably have to go to your “Photo Library” to select files (even video).

For those with Android devices, you will have to select ‘Files’ when prompted.

*Disclaimer: Submission does not guarantee selection for use on air. Content must adhere to BCTV standards – no political campaigning, no slander, no commercial advertising, no religious proselytizing, and no obscene content. Keep it clean, and keep it positive!

Playlist updated each weekday!

We need your support!
