At the Alliance for Community Media convention on July 13, FCC commissioner Gloria Tristani discussed the benefits of public broadcasters and community channels working together. The Alliance works toward ensuring access for public education broadcasters. It’s vision is similar to the one being advocated in Canada by Vision TV president and CEO Bill Roberts, who is urging public broadcasters and not-for-profit channels to band together to create a more powerful voice in Canada’s broadcasting system. Highlights from Tristani’s speech are reprinted below.
