Public, educational and governmental (PEG) access channels are one of a few remaining media outlets that broadcast local voices, cover local issues, and demenstrate how local governments work.

PEG channels encourage community residents to be more active participants in government and educational meetings by airing City Council and School Board meetings. Often they target programming to reach segments of the community that might not be served by major outlets.
