Columbia City Access TV.
I'm Otto, former CCHS grad, WJHS radio student. Currently, I work with the Access Fort Wayne (AFW), an department of Allen County Public Library. AFW runs 3 cable channels on two cable systems in Allen County.
I would like to start a channel(s) up in Columbia City. This will be a challenge do to the politics involved. The funding is in-place for equipment laid out in the cable contract. I can give you more information if you like.
What I'm looking for right know is volunteers to cover government meetings, school sporting events, school board meetings, local music, and just local content like you are producing now.
Once we have enough content for a channel, I like to start a streaming the video like a cable channel. In doing this, everyone involved can help spread the word of the end goal. The end goal would be having community based TV station right in Columbia City.
May question for you would be:
Would you be willing to summit content for the Columbia City Cable Access?
Would you be willing to summit content for the web streaming channel?
Would you be willing to volunteer to run camera, audio, and or help out in other ways?
If you know of anyone else that would be interested in helping out?
