Public Media Network relies primarily on the work and ingenuity of community volunteers to provide programming for our five cable channels and FM radio station. Volunteer Media Makers contribute thousands of hours of original programming every year. PMN’s Production Teams rely on volunteers to help them take their concepts from idea to broadcast.
There are many ways you can help, from joining one of PMN’s production teams to clerical work to sharing your media knowledge with other volunteers. To get started, fill out our Volunteer Interest Form.

Public Media Network belongs to a whole collection of community media organizations throughout the United States. These organizations open up TV and radio to the public. Taken together, they are referred to as PEG access. PEG channels are actually three distinct types of specialty-programming cable channels allowed as part of the Cable Communications Act of 1984.
What is PEG?
P – Public
