Save our Right of Ways and ONTV’s Funding!!
We need you to take action!!
The FCC recently drafted new rules regarding our local right of ways, AND local cable franchising. These changes will KILL ONTV’s funding to almost ZERO.
ONTV and other Media Centers are fighting this action.
We’re asking Orion Residents and supporters of ONTV to send us written testimonials of what you love about ONTV’s programming, and/or why you feel it’s important to have community in our town!
These messages will be forwarded to the FCC as record that we in Lake Orion value the 30 plus years of community TV ONTV has provided to our residents. Things that go away if NOTHING is done:
– Live Gavel to Gavel Government meeting coverage
– Youth media literacy camps
– Broadcast internships for local HS and College students
– Technology grants for our school district ($250,000 alone from 2017-2018)
– Support and promotion for local non-profits
– Access to technology to express your 1st amendment rights
With the elimination of franchising…ONTV’s funding will be cut to ZERO!
>Please make your voice be heard!! Contact your elected Washington and Lansing representatives:
Debbie Stabenow PH: (202)224-4822, Gary Peters PH: (202) 224-6221
Tell them to sign on to the FCC letter of opposition by Sen. Ed Markey on the FCC’s FNPR on Cable Franchise fees and In-Kind services
