[ARCHIVED] Programming Announcement Regarding “People Over Politics”, “Hometown Heroes” on MCTV Network

January 3, 2020 – Please be advised that “People Over Politics”, as moderated by Sarah Schulz, as well as “Hometown Heroes”, as moderated by Annette Glenn, has been temporarily removed from the Midland Community Television (MCTV) network schedule and its digital channels following the receipt of a cease and desist demand from the Michigan House Republican Campaign Committee. This demand states that the “People Over Politics” program is being used as “long-from [form] campaign advertisement”.

The City is currently reviewing MCTV’s Rules and Regulations and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s Statutes and Rules on Candidate Appearances and Advertising. Until this matter is resolved, both “People Over Politics” and “Hometown Heroes” have been temporarily removed from the MCTV network schedule and its digital channels.

The public awareness programs aired by both Sarah Schulz and Annette Glenn have become politicized and the City is now forced to resolve the legality of airing these programs with their current moderators.

The City hopes to resolve this in a very timely manner.

Additional questions should be directed to the Midland City Attorney’s Office at or (989) 837-3395.
