What's Your Story? DMA Needs Your Support

whatsyourstorySay “media,” and what comes to mind? The word encompasses so much, and all of it at risk. News outlets are struggling, public broadcasting is under attack, a free and open Internet is imperiled, and community media centers much like Davis Media Access (DMA) are closing their doors across the country.

DMA’s doors are, thankfully, open and accessible to all, but—we need you to help us keep them open with your support of DMA’s annual fund raising campaign.

Click here to donate online.

Between now and June 30, our fund-raising goal is $25k in support of DMA's many programs and services. Whether you participate, watch, listen or just value the fact that non-commercial community media exists in Davis, please contribute today. 

Here's some food for thought: what sets DMA apart and makes it such a valuable community resource, one worthy of your support?

LOWV Council Applicants forum ready to view

Davis Media Access  is now airing the "City Council Applicants Forum" on DCTV Channel 15 on the Comcast system and at Channel 99 on  AT&T's U-verse system. The League of Women Voters of Davis produced the program on Feb. 16 in Davis's Community Chambers. Recording was provided courtesy of City Media Services, which operates City Government Channel 16.

Moderated by LOWV Vice President Jean Canary, the forum features all 10 applicants as they respond to questions provided by the League and audience members. It runs approximately 2.5 hours. DCTV air times include:

            Friday, Feb. 18 at 5 p.m.
            Saturday, Feb. 19 at 12:30 p.m.
            Sunday, Feb. 20 at 12:30 p.m.
            Monday, Feb. 21 at noon, 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
            Tuesday, Feb. 22 at noon

The forum is also available on demand at http://dctv.davismedia.org. Due to its length, it is split into two parts.

DMA, which operates DCTV, is committed to coverage of local civic issues, and to making that content on local channels and online.
