Sign the Petition to

Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt and members of the Board of Directors

We the undersigned believe NY1 is an important part of New York City culture and whether we watch for local weather or traffic reports, Whipple's World, Parenting or On Stage, we all agree we do not wish to see it changed into a rebranded network called TWC News.  

LEAVE NY1 ALONE!

For all the years of monopoly, NY1 was a offered up as a public service by Time Warner Cable.  But now with competition, it is being used as a cudgel to remind viewers that should they switch to Fios or Dish they miss out on this important media outlet.  

The producers and reporters at NY1 continue to broadcast quality journalism with features that are focus on us, New Yorkers.  Should the TWC News network come about and connected to the 20 other local outlets Time Warner Cable owns and operates it surely will become a watered down network.

New York City deserves a 24-hour news network and Time Warner Cable should dedicate more money + resources to this valued New York newsroom not thinking up ways to network local stations to maximize reach and profits.  

Leave NY1 alone and do not rebrand or change their New York City centric news focus - it's a "bone-headed" move.

Sincerely,

Jono Waks - Editor www.nycprowler.com
