STTV says good-bye to Mark Migliore who resigned on Friday, February 26th to work for Electric City TV (ECTV). Mark had worked for STTV since 2004 and was perhaps best known for Graffiti, a collaborative effort with Tom Blomain which highlighted poems read in local and often unusual settings. Please join us in wishing Mark the best of luck in all of his future endeavors.

Dear Fellow Citizens:
The Board of Scranton Today is surprised and, certainly, disappointed with the recent decision by the City of Scranton not to continue its services as operator of the City’s public, educational, and government cable-access channels. But, Scranton Today accepts this decision, commits itself to continuing its mission to help foster “a more informed electorate and engaged citizenry,” and pledges to do all that it can to insure a smooth transition as we move forward. To do less would be a violation of the public trust Scranton Today has so careful tried to develop and maintain.
Scranton Today wishes, also, to thank the many organizations that have generously supported its mission, chiefly the

We had a piece of equipment malfunction in our headend last night which caused the issue. That piece of equipment has been replaced and everything should be working at this time.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused our customers and viewers. Please let me know if you see or hear of any other issues.
Here is an update from Karen Bazzarri, President of STTV Scranton Today:
STTV staff worked on this issue as soon as it was reported to me last night and we confirmed it was a Comcast issue.
The issues started with viewers using a high def "box" not being able view CH61, but viewers with standard cable were able to view it.
While Comcast was correcting this issue there were brief outages of CH61 on the standard cable as well.
Thank You for your patience!
We have received reports of an outage during last night’s live cablecast of City Council. There is some question as to whether the source of the problem was Scranton Today or Comcast. I personally monitored the meeting at my home between 6:45 and 8:05 and was able to watch it. Others, living in different areas, were unable to watch the meeting at this time. This leads us to believe that the outage was limited to specific areas and was therefore a Comcast issue. Please help us track down the source of the problem by commenting on this posting. (See below.) We just need to know when you tried to watch, where, in general, you were located when trying to watch, and whether you were able to view the meeting.
