Tonight, Asheville City Council will consider issuing a call for proposals, partnering with Buncombe County, for an outside group to provide "community media development" following the collapse of the WNC Community Media Center. However, the proposal does not specify that a public access television channel to replace the defunct URTV must be part of the deal, and the funding the governments would provide expires after three years.
On recommendations from staff, Asheville City Council's Finance Committee decided earlier today not to renew its contract with URTV, and to put out a request for another entity to take over its public access role.

The WNC Community Media Center has shut down studio operations while it continues to look for funding and production alternatives that would keep public-access television station URTV on the air. The nonprofit organization closed its facility at 31 College Place in downtown Asheville on Saturday night, May 14.
