Community Media & You
Saturdays on Chicago’s CAN TV21

You are watching “Community, Media, and You” on CAN TV, Channel 21 in Chicago. I’m Thom Clark of the Community Media Workshop at Columbia College, where we train nonprofit groups to use media more effectively and help journalists learn of their stories…

I would especially like to hear from viewers with ideas of community leaders you’d like to see on this show. Public affairs programming like this show require public input. So, we really do want to hear from you.

You can also view our Newstips on cable channel CAN TV27; and hear audio replays of previous CAN TV cablecasts like the Power of Radio, our Studs Terkel media awards, or my interview with SunTimes publisher John Cruickshank, at chicagopublicradio.org’s Chicago Amplified.

You have been watching “Community, Media, and You,” produced in cooperation with CAN TV Community Forum. Community Forum is a service of CAN TV and can be seen every Saturday between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on cable channel CAN TV21. Thank you for joining us!
