MPW Public Access Channel 9 - Your Community TV Station!
Produce and Air Your Own TV Show
Muscatine Community College (MCC) and MPW Digital TV developed the Muscatine Community Television Access Center (MCTAC) for the purpose of allowing individuals and organizations to produce programming for MPW Public Access Channel 9. The objective of MPW Public Access is to strengthen our community by increasing and enhancing communication among community residents. MPW Public Access provides community members with a non-commercial forum for ideas, information, and creative expression originating at the grass roots level. MCTAC staff will teach you how to use all the equipment needed to produce your very own television show including the camera, lights, and editing equipment. MCTAC will then schedule your program to run on MPW Public Access.

Submit a Pre-Produced Program
If you already have a program that you would like to share with the MPW Digital TV community, you can simply submit it to the MCC Video Department to be aired on Channel 9. The program must adhere to the submission guidelines and be submitted with a completed "Producer's Agreement" which acknowledges the producer's responsibility for content. Programs can be dropped off to the Muscatine Community College Student Center Information Office, Monday - Friday from 8a.m. - 6:30p.m. or directly to the MCC Video Department in Larson Hall.
Post a Public Service Announcement
MPW Public Access also offers a community bulletin board where non-profit community groups, government departments and educational institutions can submit event announcements. All announcements must be non-commercial in nature and need to be e-mailed, faxed or mailed to the MPW Studio Manager.
