Nashville, TN— The Metropolitan Action Commission and Metro Nashville Network (MNN) Television has partnered to launch the agency’s first season of MAC TV.

MAC TV is a television talk show that features the work the agency does as well as work done by their partners to eliminate poverty in Nashville and Davidson County. The first show began airing on Metro Government’s cable access channel in late March. The shows are also accessible via the city’s YouTube Channel under the Metro Action Playlist and on the agency’s webpage.

The first season, hosted by the agency’s Executive Director, Dr. Cynthia Croom, has an informal talk show format and is designed to allow viewers to understand the various programs of the agency as well as the partnerships within the city that helps them eliminate the barriers of poverty for low income families.

MAC TV is the first talk show formatted project that Metro Nashville Network has produced. MNN provides video for local Comcast TV Channel 3 which is available to Comcast customers and airs 24 hours each day, 7 days each week. MNN staff provides recordings of live meetings, Public Service Announcements, and recorded Metro meetings and events.

“MNN is an incredible partner of our agency as well as the rest of Metro Government. Having access to this level of service is one of many assets of city government,” said Lisa McCrady, Public Information Officer and MAC TV Managing Director.

Each new show airs on Mondays at 8pm (central) and replays on Fridays at 8pm on Comcast Channel 3. To view online, visit the agency’s website at mac.nashville.gov or the MetroGovNashville YouTube Channel.

Recording for season two is scheduled to begin by mid-April.
