Detroit Free Press:

One of the hallmarks of the cable TV age in America -- local access channels broadcasting public meetings, community events and the occasional oddball citizen show -- may be in jeopardy in parts of Michigan as a result of a loophole in a cable franchise law that could wipe out much of the funding. Some cable providers have used the loophole to suspend support for so-called PEG -- or public, education and government -- operations since the law went into effect last year. Many others could do so when their existing franchise agreements expire, rather than pay a PEG fee of up to 2% of total revenue. Legislation to require all cable providers to pay the 2% PEG fee -- on top of a 5% franchise fee -- has been introduced in both the state House and Senate... Public access TV at risk (Mon, 5/5)

SE Mich/SW Ontario FM dial to get more crowded

Canada's CRTC has granted four applications for new FM stations in Windsor, one of which will be searching for a frequency. First off, the CBC will get simulcasters for its English language CBE AM 1550 (Radio One) on FM 102.3 with 690 watts of power along with French Language CBEF AM 540 (La Premiere Chaine) on FM 105.5 with 620 watts. The applications for these stations state problems for listeners in downtown Windsor having access to their respective AM signals, creating the desire for the FM repeaters.

Blackburn Radio will continue its expansion in southwest Ontario with a new station to be licensed to Windsor at FM 95.9. That station will feature a country format and operate with 3,550 watts. Blackburn recently added FM 92.7 in nearby Leamington to its roster of stations.

A competing application for an Aboriginal station on FM 95.9 was also granted, but the CRTC is making Neeti Ray find a new frequency for this operation.

WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) is Metro Detroit's No. 1 station, sign-on to sign-off, according to the May 2008 Nielsen Media Research ratings book which closed this week. The station's numbers would've been even higher, if not for the writers strike, which forced hot shows such as "Grey's Anatomy" and "Lost" to end their respective seasons later in the month after the sweeps book had closed, depriving WXYZ of even juicer ratings coups. Despite this loss, the local ABC affiliate garnered a 4.6 rating/11.9 share, vs. WDIV-TV's 3.8 rating /9.8 share, WJBK-TV's 3.6 rating/9.3 share and WWJ-TV's 1.7 rating 4.4 share...

Don Keith is a pretty cool dad. He likes rock 'n' roll and hip-hop, and encourages daughter Rebecca, 11, and her friends to listen to it around the house. But the words and images of some popular music often grate on him. He calls it "about the most evil stuff you'll ever hear -- and they really know how to market to that age group." "There's a much more positive image and message that can come from the same good music," Keith said. So he's taken modern media, including the Internet, and infused them with another kind of message. For Rebecca and other preteens, teens and 20-somethings, Keith, 44, has started a radio broadcast of contemporary music with Christian themes and messages.
