Nonprofit Overview

CAN TV is an independent nonprofit established in 1983 as the public’s space on cable television free of commercials, filters, and censors.

On our five local channels you can see the diversity of people and ideas that reflect Chicago, including voices often excluded from the mainstream media.

The city where neighbors can freely share their passions and talents with one another is the city that works better. For everyone.

Session Overview

I am the Chairman of the Board for CAN TV. What we are considering is a strategic planning or visioning exercise because our operations are changing from moving to a new neighborhood, changes in technology, connecting to younger producers/audiences, our role in Chicago, etc.... We are a bit different from a typical not-for-profit.
