Read what the Nashville Scene, Best of 2005 Issue, has to say about this local TV station:

NASHVILLE SCENE, BEST OF ISSUE 2005
BEST NEW HOPE FOR LOCAL TV: CHANNELS 9 & 10

The proposed makeover of these historically underused educational access channels into Music City Arts TV 9 and IQ-TV 10 could mean great things for the city—for viewers hungry for locally produced and focused arts and current affairs programming, and for Nashville arts groups eager to widen their audiences through TV. If Metropolitan Educational
Access Corp. executive director Michael Catalano can make it happen with his Wayne's World resources, he'll have pulled off a bigger miracle than the turnaround of what's now the Nashville Film Festival. Stay tuned. —JIM RIDLEY
