Community Television in the United States: A Sourcebook on Public, Educational, and Governmental Access

By Linda K. Fuller | Go to book overview

Conversation with Magic Johnson" in the spring of 1992, Cable in the Classroom developed support materials for use in conjunction with the program. In operation seven days a week, X*Press's latest service is Media Centre, an archiving and catalog indexing tool.

Although there are a number of legal firms that deal with individual community television stations, several law offices and lawyers warrant special attention. Washington lawyers Joe Van Eaton53 of Miller & Holbrooke and Jim Horwood54 of Spiegel & McDiarmid have long been valuable to The Alliance. Adrian E. Herbst of Moss & Barnett ( Minneapolis) has worked exclusively for cities on cable communication issues for a quarter century, including the following services: initial franchising, refranchising/renewals, franchise administration and enforcement, transfer of ownership, municipal ownership, performance audit, financial audits, rate regulation, litigation, negotiation, ordinance drafting, nonprofit access corporations, programming agreements, and franchise agreements. 55

In January 1992, one month before the Winter Olympic Games in Albertville, France, another competition took place twenty-seven kilometers away: "The Olympics for Local Television." Participants gathered from both the northern and southern hemispheres to share their experiences of and predictions for community television. One of the participants, Randy Visser, described the event this way: "The common bond between these experiences was video. In some way each of the participants was engaged in the struggle over who would control access to the media in their own countries." 56

As is evident here, there are a remarkable number of organizations and individuals involved with community television beyond the merely local level--through cooperatives and collectives, civic, social, local, and academic organizations, mainstream and alternative media, and related businesses and foundations. It is a concept with wide ramifications.
