So what’s this DoIT thing that Jason keeps carping on? Who am I supposed to call? Well kids, here’s the skinny, courtesy of an informed viewer who left this valuable package in the comments section. Thank you informed citizen!
For those who are concerned about the future of SCAN-TV, and public access television in general, I would contact Bill Schrier and Tony Perez and CTTAB (The Citizens’ Telecommunications and Technology Advisory Board) and let them know that you think SCAN-TV has done a good job providing a voice to the community. If you feel as I do, let them know that you disapprove of their sudden efforts to defund public access. Tell Tony Perez that you believe that public access is EXACTLY what the franchise fees should be paying for. Tell them you think SCAN-TV should retain ownership of the facilities. Let them know you are WATCHING them. Public out cry is our one and only weapon at this point, so let’s use it deftly.
So here are the numbers and emails you want to concentrate on, (highlight your choice, command+C is copy, command+V is paste)
