I certainly would not like to see the Worcester Telegram & Gazette be diminished in any way. Media convergence is happening everywhere and it is NOT in the best interest of local communities. What I see is an increase of corporate agenda and government propaganda. These pose serious threats to media democracy and democracy itself.

Internet, Wireless, and Cable giants are also merging and also forming spin offs that would literally redraw the map of cable services nationwide and again, not necessarily for the best interest of our communities or consumers. With less competition, comes less information,and less points of views, and the potential to influence your brain and spending, voting, and thoughts will be now in control of a very small few and WE ALL will have much less a “soapbox” to speak and share our point of view or to even hear any dissenting view or opinion.

While there are a lot of complicated layers to what is happening in these industries, and along with the added recent mergers and FCC rulings, the key concerns are the likely loss of competitiveness, and more importantly, the degradation of fair and unbiased access to venues to support the free and opened flow of news and information, the obvious decline of true media democracy, loss of local ability to influence higher spheres of society, a widening of the digital divide.

The last thing we need is for our voices and our community media programs to be muted. What would be left? Same high bills, same high taxes, and plenty of corporate and government propaganda to influence our thinking.

Who will be accountable for that?

WCCA TV 13 Public Access Community Media. Empowering Community for over a quarter of a century

Watching the station known affectionately by all as “THE PEOPLES CHANNEL”, WCCA TV 13, I am constantly amazed by the volume of works produced by our community members and the scope of the topics of community interest reflected in TV 13’s program schedule and the level of diversity. Every day there are people coming together at WCCA studios to collaborate on a project. Look at the program schedule, while certain groups are battling elsewhere in the World, at WCCA they’re peacefully sharing the channel and our studio technology, as they share their point of view or communicate important information and or events. It’s a window into Worcester and the world. Congratulations to all who participate at WCCA. You are phenomenal !

WCCA recently conducted a community media assessment and, as always, we continue to welcome your ideas on how we can improve the services and programing we provide.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you on WCCA TV 13, “The People’s Channel”
