Casper City Council to Vote on TV Contract at Next Meeting

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Big changes could soon be coming to Casper public access television if Casper City Council approves a $44,500 contract with an area production company at an upcoming meeting.

Casper City Council will vote on whether to enter into a contract with Casper-based Wolf Gang of Wyoming, LLC at its regular meeting Tuesday night.

If council approves the resolution, Wolf Gang will program the city of Casper’s cable Channel 3 with a mixture of public domain programs and new content.

Casper mayor Kenyne Schlager says she believes the deal is beneficial.

“There are so many little laws and rules and activities that we’re doing that we can share with people,” Schlager said. “I think it’s going to be a great asset.”

Schlager says she envisions the retooled Channel 3 as a critical tool for Casper tourism and community awareness.

“There will be mechanisms where we can show what’s going on in our community throughout the time that people are traveling,” Schlager said. “I’m hoping it’s a utilized and valued item for Casper.”

At a recent council work session, Wolf Gang executive producer Dennis Rollins pitched several programming ideas to councilors. One idea involved filming the day-to-day actions of various city workers, including police officers and garbage men.

Rollins says his company has produced several hours of programming for Wyoming PBS.
