    Book details

This text explores the industry of low-power television (LPTV) in America. It covers what LPTV is and how it got started, who the broadcasters are and their viewers, LPTV's significance in contemporary society and culture, and the challenges it faces in the late 1990s and the millennium.

A highly eclectic form of broadcasting in the United States today, by any standard, is low-power television (LPTV). Not an insignificant blip in the industry, there are more LPTV stations licensed than there are full-power television stations. LPTV offers true local and community programming to millions of viewers. Because it fills gaps left by both full-power television and cable, LPTV tends to serve outlying communities, disenfranchised urban groups, and others who have no other way to get their messages out, stay connected, or receive video programs that meet their special interests and needs. In this, the first book devoted entirely to LPTV, the authors tell the complete story of this unique and important medium from its inception to the formidable challenges it faces today and its potential for tomorrow.
