In partnership with the City of Albuquerque Katharsis Media runs the New Mexico Education Channel / Comcast local 96. The NM Educational Access Channel broadcasts on Comcast 96 and is one of the four Public Access channels granted to the City of Albuquerque. Public access television was created by the Federal Communications Commission in the late 1960’s to provide a form of non-commercial mass media where the general public can create television programming for broadcast through the local cable company. Katharsis Media recently partnered with the City of Albuquerque to manage the Educational Access channel, and has since been nationally honored as “Best in Overall Excellence in Educational Access Television” in our budget category by the Alliance for Community Media. In partnership with WIOA, NIYC and Albuquerque Public Schools, Katharsis Media is able to offer opportunities for internships and career exploration and provides on the job training and career opportunities for 25-35 youth and young adults every academic year. Katharsis Media has maintained a 52% scholarship rate since its conception in 2019 and has supported over a hundred artists through various projects. One of Katharsis’ founders, Candice Neu, has also produced her own talk show, The Neu Agenda, which airs on Comcast 27, the Southwest Channel, and has been picked up in Manhattan (Manhattan Neighborhood Network) and the Bronx (BronxNet) for its sixth season, premiering in January 2024. The show boasts an impressive roster of guests, including Edred Utomi (Hamilton on the Angelica Tour of Hamilton) and Oscar Rene Lazyoy II (Director for Law & Order SVU: LA Unit). Candice has become known across New Mexico Film as an influencer and local celebrity, and will be one of the hosts of the project for this proposal.
