History

Pasadena Community Access Corporation was formed by the City of Pasadena in 1983.[1] On January 12, 2010, Pasadena Community Network's set of cable channels were moved on Charter cable. The public access channel known as Pasadena Channel was renamed The Arroyo Channel and moved from cable channel 56 to 32. KPAS moved from 55 to 3, KLRN moved from 64 to 95, and PCC TV moved to 96.[5] By the April 2, 2014 grand opening[6] of the community media center at 150 S. Los Robles Ave., the corporation operated under the name Pasadena Media. Executive Director George Falardeau began his tenure October 10, 2016.[2]

In 2018, Pasadena Media aired the trivia game show Buzz'd Out! on their station.[7]
