We did a candidates forum back in 1994 LIVE on TV (Cablecast)
It was also LIVE on one of our local radio stations (Simulcast)
And LIVE on PBS affiliate Pioneer Public Television in Appleton, MN (Broadcast)
The PBS engineer pointed out that he didn’t think any public access station in the nation had ever done a LIVE broadcast with a broadcast channel.
Soooooo…We think we were the first public access channel in the world to produce a LIVE program that was cablecast, simulcast and broadcast at the same time.
