Meet the Staff

Lisa Lowry, Assistant General Manager 
 
I started my journey with Channel 13 in November of 1991 while i was still in college.  I received my Bachelors Degree from Central Connecticut State University in 1992 in Communications/Mass Media.  For thirty-one years I have had the honor of working with so many wonderful Producers from the community.

Al Coles, Senior Broadcast Operations Manager

Al Coles embarked on his journey in Community Access TV in 1982 when WCAT was formed in

Waterbury, located at what is now the Comcast Service Center on Huntingdon Ave.
He was hired on staff in 1990, as a production assistant, learning along the way videography and editing
on 3/4inch and 1/2inch videotape. He participated in the production of local election coverage shot on
location and in the studio. He was instrumental in the formation of the local awards show formally
known as the Sammy Awards, later to be called the Skye Awards honoring excellence in local TV.
Al has also worked diligently over the years to keep up with the current technology, and has been a
champion of securing leading equipment in an effort to keep up with the latest trends in the broadcast
industry.

Al is in his 32nd year as staff member, having first worked for Sammons Communications, and later,
through the formation of Skye XIII, Inc. In his position today as Senior Broadcast Operations Manager, he
continues to train the public and new staff members in all aspects of video production.
When he is not doing video production, he can be found making what could be loosely described as
music, in his home project studio.
