Leal Announces Community Media Grant

Tucson City Councilmember Steve Leal (Ward V) cordially invites everyone to Tucson’s community cable channel, Access Tucson, 124 E. Broadway, Wednesday, May 2, 11:00 a.m.

“I will be giving a $11,700 Back to Basics award to Access Tucson for a study that looks at a possible future expansion on their building at 124 E. Broadway,” said Leal. “This would be a Community Media Center that could include a diverse collection of media entities enhanced resources.”

The goal of this award is to strengthen community’s resources for participation in the local community

“There is a great need for a Community Media Center,” Leal went on to say. “Access Tucson, KXCI, Pan Left and other communications groups can come together in an integrated form. This would not only make these groups more efficient, it would also spur creativity so I am donating the funds for the study and design work that will be done by the Poster Group.”
