Encore Programming for June Closure
Similar to last year, Access Tucson will close it's facility for the month of June. All employees will be furloughed without pay for that month in order to deal with budget cuts. Programming on the channels will continue through master control automation.
However, the closure will prohibit the intake and processing of programs. Master control operators will be using the month of May to process the programs and pre-schedule the channels for June. The cablecast rule that producers must turn in a new episode at least every four weeks will be suspended for June.
As mentioned previously in the March 25th eNewsletter, the deadline for tape producers (local and import) to submit programming for June is Wednesday May 5.
Live producers may submit their last live show through Saturday May 22 on the day it was live to play in June.
Producers may only submit up to two programs for June. Please be sure to use a cablecast calendar so staff knows which episode you want to play when.
