Missing in this piece is a statement as to what is the charter (purpose) of TV30 and its sister station channel 28. If you know what it is and you support it, then you four mayors should come up with the money. If you don't either understand it or don't support it if you do understand the charter, then get rid of it.
If nobody is watching it, and you don't have a clear view of its purpose, the answer is clear. If nobody is watching it, but you really believe it has a purpose, then throw more money at it.
It seems TV30 is caught in a twilight zone. It is supposed to be competitive against the myriad other channels in capturing viewer's interest but has one one thousandths of the budget that the others have for programming and infrastructure. What a losing battle!

Actually, frank, TV30 is NOT meant to "compete" with the "myriad other channels"... it's meant to supplement them.
No news is not good news, it's never good news when a community loses its only local newscast.
TV30 has two things working for it: it's a TV station and it's a non-profit. There should be no problem finding FREE volunteers looking to kill their time or for TV experience. Use 'em!
