Public Access Still Relevant

05/22/2014 - 1:16pm
A research paper on public access television published in the Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media has concluded that public access is still relevant. The audience analysis, which was based on survey data gathered by the City of Austin and the University of Texas, found that "despite major innovations in digital and mobile media, traditional PEG channels remain a highly relevant source of information." The study specifically demonstrated that "public access television remains relevant to underprivileged populations," that "public access television has not been eclipsed by online content sharing platforms," and that "compared to non-viewers, viewers of public access channels have significantly more social capital."  >> Read the complete article << Wenhong, Chen, Marcus Funk, Joseph D.
