FC Public Media operates in the public interest by encouraging participation in civic life as well as fostering artistic and cultural expression. We also facilitate better communication between non-profit organizations and the community they serve. We energetically support all individuals as they explore their creativity through the media of public access television and website broadcasting. We also serve as a balancing faction for the corporate presence in the media.
