Austin Public COVID-19 Updates


Posted: July 2, 2020

As a result of continued discussions with AFS leadership and our Program Manager with the City of Austin’s Telecommunications and Regulatory Affairs department we have decided to take further action to limit Austin Public’s onsite operations due to the current marked increase in COVID cases and hospitalizations during this ongoing pandemic. In addition to the closure of the studios and edit lab we are also suspending all further equipment checkout, effective immediately. 

These suspensions are temporary for the health and safety of Austin Public staff as well as the community we serve. Our goal has been to provide our active Producers with the ability to continue producing content in support of public dialogue and our efforts to support that goal will resume once we see the City of Austin’s key indicators reflect a downward trend. We will continue our channel programming, live stream capabilities as well as our on-line classes and engagements. 

If you’re an active Producer and have content and need information on how to upload and program your show then here is the programming information on our website as well as a training video explaining the process. If you have any further questions about remote streaming or channel programming please reach out to
