Stop the FCC from Defunding PEG Channels

The FCC is proposing some changes to redefine what a franchise fee is and it will radically reduce the level of monetary support available to run PEG --public access stations like Laurel TV.

As you know, PEG stations provide government coverage and local content about the community that you might not see on other broadcast channels or in the newspaper.

You can help fight that effort by entering a comment against the changes on the link provided. Thanks for your support.
