"City" piece on the city of Portland's franchise agreement with Time Warner Cabl
"City" piece on the city of Portland's franchise agreement with Time Warner Cable, which expires in May 2003. In preparation, the Community Television Network (CTN) (Channels 2 and 4) is assessing its needs and mapping out a future plan. Currently, Portland collects $850,000 from Time Warner. That money goes into the general fund and some of it is disbursed to CTN, which has an annual budget of $230,000. Time Warner gives CTN $55,000 directly and the city provides another $30,000. The rest comes from grants, membership fees and selling production services and airtime. In the next contract, CTN wants a bigger piece of the pie.
