Missoula Community Access Television (MCAT) provides Missoula residents and organizations with the equipment, training, and channel time to produce TV programs based on their interests and concerns. These programs reflect Missoula’s cultural, political, and intellectual diversity, and help foster a community dialogue about people and issues that might otherwise go unnoticed. The Community’s Access to a television is a logical extension of the First Amendment right, to the most powerful communications technology of our day. Using community access television, local people can speak for themselves through programs they produce for the cable system. These programs reflect the culturally diverse city of Missoula. Show topics include politics, comedy, culture and many others.
