Open Signal empowers the people of Portland to make effective use of media for creative expression, cultural exchange and civic participation.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, we engaged 3,631 people who created more than 10,000 hours of media in six languages (Chinese, English, Farsi, Romanian, Russian and Spanish) that was delivered to 400,000 homes via our five cable channels, and we didn’t charge a cent for equipment rental or broadcasting fees.
“Open Signal serves the underserved population and those who don’t have the opportunity to voice their opinions through mass media. It is an alternative medium.” —Ahmad Mostafavi, writer and producer of My Iran
