Is there a better way for MPBN to find savings?

Posted Jan. 05, 2009, at 3:49 p.m.

MPBN has announced it will stop transmitting its TV and radio programs from Calais and Fort Kent for at least six months to save funds. Residents of Washington and Aroostook counties have protested the move. Are there alternative measures MPBN can

take? Should some of its higher-cost programs be dropped (if so, which ones)? Should more locally produced programs replace nationally syndicated shows (assuming the local

shows cost less)?
