City defends giving $50K for TV show
Placeholder Image
Since the city of McMinnville voted to underwrite the “Bluegrass Underground” TV series to air on PBS this fall, public reaction has been negative.“I’ve received more flack from this than anything else we’ve done,” said Alderman Billy Wood. “People are mad. I’ve never seen anything like it.”One misconception in the community is the city “donated” $50,000 to a for-profit organization.
