The ACM works tirelessly to support and promote these public, educational, and government access (PEG) cable TV organizations and community media centers that strive to promote interest in local issues and events. In the podcast, Mr. Wassenaar offers some thought provoking ideas about the value of these community media centers when it comes to their roles in promoting civic engagement and protecting and increasing freedom of expression.
