The Western Morning News has a report about Conservative plans for local TV.

The editorial claims that local TV in the USA is "trashy" so such an option would not be welcome in the UK. I discussed this with Jo Gedrych of Exeter TV, based at Life Bytes on Sidwell Street. He has lived in the USA and studied local TV there. He wonders about the basis for the editorial view and points out that there are already several examples of local TV in the UK, an aspect not mentioned in the editorial.

I have put a very short video on YouTube as a hook for more comment and maybe some examples of local content.
