Public Access Station Moves to Goleta
Santa Barbara Channels Takes over Former KPMR Building
Santa Barbara Channels, the public access TV station for southern Santa Barbara County, is moving from its location in downtown Santa Barbara to a larger facility at 7000 Hollister Rd. in Goleta. Executive Director Hap Freund said Channels will occupy the 8,100-square-foot building, formerly the home of Spanish-language KPMR-TV, by the end of April, and will get more space for cheaper rent. He hopes the bigger studio will encourage live-audience shows, and that the proximity to UCSB will result in more youthful programming.
