WORCESTER— More than 100 supporters of WCCA-TV, Channel 13, the nonprofit, local public access cable channel, last night urged the City Council Public Service and Transportation Committee to ensure that the station’s funding is not decreased as part of the new cable television contract the city negotiates with Charter Communications Inc.

They also lobbied for an additional public access channel, as well as a regional public access channel for Central Massachusetts, with WCCA serving as its base. Mauro DePasquale, executive director of WCCA, pressed the committee for assurances that the station will continue receiving at least the same level of funding (about $650,000 annually) as under the old contract. —>

NEW LEGISLATION IN THE WORKS COULD END PUBLIC ACCESS TELEVISION!
The Statewide Video Franchise Bill (SB284) is moving very quickly through the Missouri Legislature. This bill has the potential to cause the loss of support and/or channels for PEGs. —>
