Last night’s launch of a new and approved PEG Channel took place at the Fernandina Beach Airport. The PEG Channel committee was established to develop new and improved programming for the Comcast Community Access Channel 264. Comast reaches over 10,000 homes in Fernandina Beach and Nassau County as well as over 600,000 visitors each year. Members of the committee are Taylor Owenby, chair, Julie Ferreira, Judie Mackle, Megan Stewart, and Lauren Templeton-Saxon. Mary Hamburg serves as the city staff liaison.
According to Owenby, by the end of last’s event, “$11,000 in in-kind donations and capital commitments to our program” were received. At this time, the PEG Committee is seeking “All Star Partners,” (see further information below) to join them as they seek to enhance the programming. Contributions are tax-deductible.
One of the major goals of the PEG Committee is to expand access to quality programming for all residents and visitors. Content creators, businesses, non-profit organizations, are welcomed to submit a proposal for approval.
