TUCSON SHINES ON TV…..

Access Tucson’s been busy the past three months. Location shoots and one live show from Studio A give Tucsonans the opportunity to enjoy diverse community programming.

Access Tucson helps local non-profit organizations or government entities use television to inform and entertain citizens living in the Tucson Valley. Our 3 cable channels reach approximately 200,000 households in the city and county and worldwide internet viewers.

“What’s This Show About?” Building Free Speech…
This show’s about the fundamental right of free speech and the value of public access television.

A lively panel of Access Tucson producers and community members refute critics who claim that hardly anyone watches public access television…and describe the means by which any of us can use television to speak with our community and the world beyond.

Cesar Chavez Bridge Dedication …
A beautiful new bridge graces Tucson’s Southside. The Cesar Chavez Labor Bridge was dedicated earlier this year—and Access Tucson was there.

You’ll see a lot more than the ribbon cutting ceremony. Watch interviews with labor and social-justice activists Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez’s brother Richard, along with the bridge artists and community members.

City Councilmember Steve Leal and many Southside neighbors worked with artists Alex Garza and Josh Sarantitis to build this unique bridge
