WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:

Louise Thompson is executive director of the Tampa Bay Community Network, the agency that runs the public access channel in Hillsborough County.

WMNF spoke with her this morning. We asked how much hope did she have that a fourth commissioner would join the other three members who had previously indicated they would vote to maintain some county funding for the channel?

The Channel lost a a major chunk of funding last night, when the Board of County Commissioners voted 4-3 to completely cut its $355,000 in annual funding.
