This study conducted content analysis for the 266 public access programs. By doing so it aimed to suggest ideal directions for the pubic access. This study found that most programs were well meshed with variety, locality, and representation of minorities, which are goals of what public access programs are for. However, this study suggested that more diverse producers in terms of ages and occupations need to participate and also cable SOs should try to motivate viewers by covering various topics and areas in public access programs in the future. Lastly, the Korea Communications Commission also need to continuously offer more positive financial aids and public relations to support this program.
