The local Public Video Service Board began discussions Thursday night about the future of Madison TV-15 and the possibility of bringing new programming to the public access channel.

Board members discussed the current programming of Madison TV-15, which includes coverage of government and other public meetings in Jefferson County, Madison and Hanover, spotlights of local organizations, a segment from Kentuckiana News and weekend programming featuring movies in the public domain and religious and substance abuse programming.

Board members heard a presentation during the meeting from WKM News about a possible partnership with the public access channel, which a proposed agreement for services said would allow the group to “produce the video content and otherwise operate Madison TV 15…”

The board tabled discussion about the proposed agreement to allow members to digest the information and gather questions.

Board President Dan Hoffman said he would also like to look to the future of Madison TV-15 and discuss other options for partnerships, like possibly working with area colleges to expand local programming.

Board members also tabled that discussion until the board’s March 9 meeting, which will be held at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
