Viewers in Los Angeles were given the chance to protest KCET-TV’s decision to drop its PBS affiliation at a board meeting in Hollywood — the only problem was that no one showed up, reports our friend T.L. Stanley in the Los Angeles Times’ ShowTracker blog.
The meeting didn’t have a single speaker, protester or supporter during the public-discussion segment of the meeting, the story notes. "Questions? Comments?" asked Gordon Bava, chairman of KCET’s board. "Anyone?"
Nevertheless, KCET’s decision has spurred comments elsewhere, with message board postings and blog comments showing anger at the station’s decision, the story points out. Wednesday’s meeting had been announced on KCET’s Website and was open to the public, but only board members, a few dozen KCET employees and a couple reporters attended the meeting, the article notes.
