The City of Scranton's decision to award management of Channels 61 & 62 to ECTV has seriously eroded our ability to raise funds and retain staff. As a result, we will be forced to make cutbacks in programming. Tapings that involved multiple cameras and complex direction have been canceled. The most prominent of these shows, Stories, Wisdom, and Recipes, will be taping its last episode on March 20th. For the time being, we will continue to tape, whenever possible, shows that require only static cameras or a portable camera. We will also continue to tape and cablecast (live when possible) municipal meetings for the time being. We hope that, by the time our resources are completely exhausted, ECTV is ready to take over.
