City of Cannon Falls

 

Channel 12 in Cannon Falls provides area residents access to local government meetings, high school sports, and community events of public interest. Every City Council, Planning Commission, and County Board meeting is covered, and coverage of high school home sporting events expands each season. Each year, community parades, high school music and drama productions, and special occasions of local organizations are aired. The station also broadcasts other popular programs such as Vets Visits and Friendship Set to Music. In addition, a bulletin board informs the public of local weather, sports scores, lunch menus, and agendas of upcoming meetings.


The PEG access channel is operated by the City, and the main control studio is housed at the city hall. Adjacent to the main studio are the council chambers, as well as a dedicated production studio. Most programs filmed at city hall are broadcast live, as are many sporting events at the local high school, with coordination with the school district. Area students serve as technicians, configuring equipment and operating cameras. In an effort to reach a wider audience, Channel 12 has begun the process of moving online. The Cable Commission continues to seek valuable programming to serve the community through television.
