It’s with deep sadness that Foxboro Cable Access announces the death of volunteer and community producer BJ Bjork (August 21,1943 – August 26, 2012). BJ began his journey with FCA back in October 2009, quickly jumping into the producers seat with the creation of “Let’s Paint the Town with BJ Bjork“. Over the past three years BJ produced 20 episodes, each one capturing BJ’s jovial personality and his pasion for life and the arts.
BJ always pushed for quality and took the process and responsibility that comes with TV production seriously. The FCA community is thankful to have had the opportunity to meet BJ and spend time with such a passionate guy.
You can check out many of BJ’s shows on our website: http://video.fcatv.org/category/community/lets-paint-the-town/
