Salina Media Connection is a membership based organization.  Members are granted access to all facility resources and production equipment.

Salina Media Connection staff and volunteers provide the training and equipment necessary to create programs that express your creativity, explain your ideas, share your culture and foster your right to freedom of speech.


Access TV is located on the northwest corner of 9th and Ash in Salina, Kansas in Memorial Hall.  We have a 500 square foot studio complete with studio lighting, Chromakey screen, telepromptor, studio cameras and studio control room.
