The Calaveras County Paul Moeller Public Access Televison Studio is located in San Andreas, California. We are a P.E.G. Access organization that is a part of Calaveras County Government, and are one of a handful of departments that are self funded. Our funding comes from Cable Frachise Fees. The funding is used to support the two channels we operate, local Comcast Channels 7 & 9 in Calaveras County. These local channels are currently reserved for local programming that benefit the residents of Calaveras County. P.E.G Access in Calaveras County was founded by Calaveras Community TV, a non-profit organization that was formed in the 1983 with Paul Moeller at its head to facilitate the building of the local studio and air original community programming.
We strive to broadcast locally produced programs whenever possible, drawing from our program archive of over 5,000 locally produced programs to do so. In order to air current and engaging programs, we also curate programs from other public access stations, government agencies and non-profit groups, along with arts and entertainment programs that you may not see broadcast on other channels.
The mission of Public, Education, and Government (P.E.G.) Access Television in Calaveras County is to offer residents the means and opportunity to video tape topics and events in Calaveras County, and to have those topics and events shown on Calaveras County Public Access Television Local Comcast Channels 7 & 9. Furthermore, we are here to help foster community growth, both as individuals and as a collective, in order to express our own unique voices, and give those voices a forum to be heard on local television and on digital media.
The goals for P.E.G. Access Television are to promote free speech, foster diverse points of view, encourage communications, create opportunities, encourage artistic expression, expand educational access, and promote participatory democracy in order to enrich the lives of Calaveras County residents and visitors.
