On June 9, 2011, the FCC released a new report titled Information Needs of Communities: The Changing Media Landscape in a Broadband Age. The goal of the report was to identify trends and make recommendations on how the information needs of communities could be met in a broadband world. NATOA members will be particularly interested in Chapter 7: PEG Access Channels.
The entire report may be found at: http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-307406A1.pdf
The section on nonprofit media starts on p. 146 -- PEG is discussed in ch. 7 and 27; see pp. 15, 170-175, 298-301, 352, 357 (may be other references sprinkled about).
