Coming together in Chicago for the YearlyKos Convention earlier this month, ePluribus Media's Tanya Harned, Kay Shepherd and Ilona Meagher were invited to appear on a local cable access program, Issue Forum with Frank Avila.
Twice in September, Chicago Access Network, or CAN-TV's Channel 19 ("seen by the 400,000+ Cable-TV households in the City of Chicago"), will air the interview recorded on August 3. Avila, an Army Reserve Captain, was a super host. Thanks to the whole CAN-TV crew for showing us a good time and having us on to talk about citizen journalism and new media.
Kay scooped me by two weeks, and sets the scene:
One of the extracurricular activities we undertook at YearlyKos 2007 was a trip to Green Street and the Chicago Access Network studios, a production facility for the area's five-channel public access television network. We learned a great deal about their citizen programming as well as their outreach to at-risk youth.
Watch it online now, or see it on channel 19 next month:
