Putting the power of the media and technology
in the hands of the people.
October 2018 Newsletter
Letter from Tony Shawcross, OMF Executive Director

The City of Denver is making significant changes to Public Access. OMF and the City want YOU to have a voice in the process!

The Good News: The City Plans to establish a permanent home in the new Rocky Mountain PBS building, with funding for a dedicated staff person: two benefits OMF never received in our years of operating DOM.

The Bad News: Until this new facility is complete in 2020/2021, the City is calling for Public Access to operate out of the City & County Building, where access to equipment, studios, and training would be limited. 

If you'd like to provide feedback, the City of Denver has announced an open meeting on Mon, Oct 8 at 3pm. Community members are encouraged to submit questions and concerns by 4 pm on Oct 9th to  [email protected]Questions will be answered on October 11th, and we will be hosting a member's meeting that evening to review answers and discuss what's next for Denver Open Media and our community.
