By any standards, the most eclectic form of broadcasting in the U.S. today is called low-power television (LPTV). Not an insignificant blip in the industry, LPTV offers true local and community programming to tens of thousands of U.S. viewers. Because it can go where the cable industry doesn't go, LPTV tends to serve either outlying rural communities or disenfranchised communities such as gangs and new immigrant groups who have no other way to stay connected. One trend Keith notes is the proliferation of stations in the Northwest owned by right-wing, militia, or Christian fundamentalist groups that broadcast to their select audience of like-minded fringe groups.

This is the first book available that tells the complete story of this unique and powerful movement from its inception to the formidable challenges it faces today.
