The Darien Athletic Foundation and The Darien Foundation have announced that they have agreed to a joint venture on the leadership and funding of DAF Media, a local live-streaming high-definition video network. Sarah Woodberry, Executive Director of The Darien Foundation said, “We are excited to join forces on this venture to provide rewarding opportunities to the youth of Darien while producing a worthwhile product for our entire community”. DAF Media broadcasts are produced by a volunteer staff of local youths and adults who learn to use broadcast cameras, computers, software, microphones, mixers, and lights plus all of the less-technical aspects like logistical planning that go into producing high-quality live broadcasts. Broadcast events include arts, athletics, and community events. “We are thrilled to have The Darien Foundation joining forces with us on the DAF Media initiative” added Bruce Ferguson a Darien Athletic Foundation board member who will chair the committee that steers the joint venture.
