Providing this important programming is the stated mission of hundreds of community media centers and community access TV stations across the country. Coming to you from the studios of Queens Public Television in New York City, the “Community Media Podcast” seeks to explain the value of community media for today’s audiences and strives to support its continued service to our publics. Host John Collins and his guests explore the origins and rationale behind community media centers and consider what makes these centers such unique and valuable public resources. They also outline the future challenges facing community media going forward.
