Yes, With A Catch

Minority Tele vision Project says it now needs to raise $3 million to start operating KQEC-TV, sister station of MTP-owned KQED-TV. The Federal Communications Commission tentatively has approved MTP’s bid to operate the station but insists the group prove it is financially stable.

Last week, KQED-TV abandoned its 10-year fight to hold onto the license of its pubcaster sister station. After it surrendered, several days passed before MTP responded to inquiries about its plans, finally releasing a statement that it expects to raise the $3 million from “private citizens, community groups, the corporate community and grants.”

It is unclear, however, who the operators of MTP actually are. Questions still remain about involvement of Adam Clayton Powell II, a key MTP member, who has a controversial broadcasting background as owner of KDIA-TV Oakland and news v.p. at National Public Radio.
