Holly Deitchman, the Station Manager, is no stranger to BATV, as she joined the BATV Board in fall 2004 as the Treasurer. During her years on the board, she familiarized herself with the inner workings of the station and has valued the importance of the volunteers and staff, and their impact to the station. Her business background in accounting teamed up with her unparalled vision and forward thinking have given her a spot on Batavia’s radar of up and coming professionals making a difference in the community.
