|ULM presents broadcast deal to police jury|
The University of Louisiana-Monroe hopes to take over the parish's governmental access channel to provide a variety of information to the public.
The Ouachita Parish Police Jury currently is not using its governmental access channel.
ULM's Michael Echols provided the police jury with a proposition to take on the project.
According to Echols, student media has become a major part of academia at the university.
"ULM is actively enhancing the video production studio, incorporating the digital media studio into academic offerings, channeling events from athletics and other academic areas," according to Echols.
He provided a few suggestions for use of the local governmental access channel.
Those suggestions include:
- Police jury meeting announcements and/or public meetings aired;
- Local schools promoting their events;
- ULM event promotions;
- ULM interactive classes broadcasted on air for community learning;
- Potentially broadcasting sporting events;
- Research documentaries aired from ULM;
"Our students now have the ability to produce, edit and manage content to be used in the promotion and enhancement of the northeast Louisiana community in a number of key areas," Echols said. "Other institutions in our state have a very dynamic public access TV channel that they use to educate their community and provide information about their institution."
Echols discussed the project with parish attorney Jay Mitchell. They talked about ULM forming a partnership with the police jury to utilize its public access channel.
Police juror Walt Caldwell believes the project would work out well for both parties.
"I think it would be a wonderful thing because here we have this channel that we don't use in any fashion, and part of the problem is we don't have the means to do so," Caldwell said. "We don't have the camera crew, we don't have cameras, but ULM does."
"Quite frankly, as interesting as our meetings are, we don't have the content to fill up 24 hours a day," Caldwell said. "On the other hand ULM could probably show some old football games and different events. They probably have a much better programming than we could have."
He said a partnership with ULM would allow the university to use the parish's access channel for public purposes and the police jury would reserve the right to broadcast any information it desired to broadcast.
Mitchell said the partnership would not cost the parish any money.
Caldwell suggested the police jury think about the proposal and act on it at a later date.
