Cable access programming to include immigrant, ethnic perspectives

Comcast Cable channels 9 and 10 will feature more programs locally produced by Michael Catalano, executive director of the Metropolitan Educational Access Corp.

"The first giant step for Catalano and company came with the taping of Metro Nashville Schools — No Child Left Behind. The half-hour production, which began taping at Charlotte Park Elementary School on Thursday, will trace a 'newly arrived immigrant child and a native-born American as they go through school, the kind of walls they hit (and) problems the teachers have,' he said."

"'We also plan on having a multicultural newscast every day from here,' he said. He wants that newscast to be a half-hour long and for it to include a look at world events, local news and features from various ethnic communities."
