The FiOS Story
Click here to read about the newest developments.
After poking along for several years, the PCTVAB got a new chairman, added members and pretty much got in gear to address lingering issues. No offense to those who went before, as they were all dedicated citizens who did their best.
Part of the impetus to see this board functioning in a more vital way must be credited to City Council liaisons, including Council President Annie McWilliams, who comes across as analytical and action-oriented when it comes to city issues. A lot more boards and commissions could use the catch-up approach that got the PCTVAB up and running toward concrete goals.
Now that the city has two local channels, the next challenge will be to come up with appropriate and interesting content. The current videographer is targeted for layoff. Will there be some way to produce engaging and topical content in coming months?
Some people have suggested that if the local channels cannot fulfill their roles, the Comcast and FiOS revenues should just be put into general revenues. What do you think?
