The article highlights ongoing struggles of Access Tucson to maintain its share of the cable franchise fees that are intended for public access TV, and also that KXCI had its best fund drive ever.

Democracy Now! will be broadcast from the studios of KUAT/Arizona Public Media Ch. 6, a PBS affiliate, on Monday Apr 27th.
