Frustration over the changing media landscape prompted an East Grand Forks man to ask city leaders if there was anything they could do to bring a local television station back to greater Grand Forks.
Wayne Skalicky says he’s tired of watching news that only deals with Fargo…Moorhead…and Detroit Lakes.
Skalicky says he doesn’t know why Grand Forks…East Grand Forks…and Devils Lake does not have a television station. He urged economic development leaders to try to encourage an investor to bring a new T-V station to town.
Council member Marc DeMers says the city is trying to provide more information online and by streaming meetings that are not filtered by any news organization.
Mayor Steve Gander says he would pass the concerns on to the E-D-A and The Chamber.
