While the Alliance for Community Media fights to keep PEG (public, educational and government) channels on the air, there are local bright spots emerging, such as in Exeter, N.H., which is starting a new public-access channel, according to the Exeter News-Letter in Portsmouth. “I think of it as an opportunity for people to be more of a part of their community and to know what is going on,” Doug York, the Exeter Public Television coordinator, told the paper. “It can also be a way for people to express themselves artistically.” Supporters of the public-access channel have spent the past few years working on the project.
