“We will have our own version of a newscast…Let’s say we had two council members who were on opposite ends of a debate at the table. We’ll pull them aside and interview them on TV and say expound on that debate — why do you feel that way?” Pugh said.

“So, it’ll be better television, outside of just showing you gavel-to-gavel council coverage,” he said.
