Poole Featured in Pittsburgh City Paper

Thomas Poole, who attended Hobart College, was featured in the May 29 Pittsburgh City Paper, in an article titled “Screen Saver: Can Tom Poole revive public-access cable TV in Pittsburgh?”. Poole is the executive director of Pittsburgh Community Television (PCTV), and is working to reinvigorate the station. His plan is to involve as many people as possible, and work toward a balance that better represents all of the community of Pittsburgh. “One of the things public access can do is market the concept of public access better,” he said. He envisions billboards that say, “Don’t watch TV. Make TV.” He said, “I want Pittsburgh in this station. I want to see the community.”
