MACOMB CABLE NETWORK
The Macomb Cable Network (MCN) is a shared service of the City of Mount Clemens and the Mount Clemens Community Schools. Cable Television was first offered in Mount Clemens in the late 1980’s. The community was faced with the issue of possibly having to create multiple television stations to host the Public, Education and Government (PEG) channels. It was agreed between the City and School District that one, Community Access Cable Television Station, would be created and the financing of the station would be shared by both entities. This community station would be located in the high school and would offer educational programs for students and adults.
