Media Localism

This chapter focuses on elements of local broadcasting that is often glossed over: community television and community media. The chapter begins by defining community media and then proceeds to the case studies: public access television (PEG) regulation in the United States, the redrafting of Canadian community television regulations in 2002 and 2010, and the lack of community television and importance of community radio and hyperlocal media in the UK. This chapter argues that community media need to be fully integrated into a holistic conceptualization of local media among policymakers, regulators, and local media stakeholders. A second goal is to demonstrate that it is within conversations about, and discourses of, community media where larger issues of the local and its relationship to local media become most pronounced.
