Thinking about public access tv

Last week I met with the board of a local public-access tv station.  Here’s Andrea Suozzo’s good write-up.

I liked the way the board listened hard, and thought creatively about what to do next.

Suggestions for the future of the library-MCTV collaboration were many: working to archive media, filtering the flow of media from a local angle, building the organization’s role as a community center and training resource, and simply continuing television programming for the time being to serve those who do watch it.

The possibilities were wide-ranging, but Alexander reminded the crowd that there was one guiding tenet of the organization.

“I don’t think you can go too wrong if you stay focused on the community,” said Alexander.
