The Peoples Channel and Durham Community MediaBusiness — Local business
|About||Local Media: Learn. Create. Watch.|
In the early 1990's a small group of concerned community members and media activists organized for better Community Access in Chapel Hill. In 1996 Robert Gwyn, Eva Metzger and Vimala Rajendran signed the incorporation papers that created The Peoples Channel (TPC) as a non-profit organization.
The founders helped organize public support for a community-run organization, responsive to community needs, to be the operator of public access for Chapel Hill. Previously, Time Warner Cable had been the operator, but community members wanted a local organization to be guardian of such an important community resource.
TPC and DCM offer a place for all community members to have free access to television production and ensures effective uses of community media.
|Mission||The Peoples Channel and Durham Community Media’s mission is to advance democratic ideals by ensuring that people have access to electronic media and by promoting effective communication through community uses of media. Through this mission, we aim to provide the means and promote the opportunity for area community members to exercise free speech through media production, education and distribution of electronic media.|
