When the little-known TV station, Ovation, was kicked off of its platform by Time Warner, our team created the Television and Arts Coalition to fight back. Through this grassroots effort we garnered the support of a wide range of elected officials and community arts foundations. In the process, Ovation was elevated in the public mind as a premier advocate for the arts in NYC-and its exclusion from the Time Warner platform was perceived as an offensive to the entire NYC arts community. As a result of the growing pressure, Time Warner conceded and signed Ovation back onto its network.
