Native TV show canceled after 30 years

Native TV show ends 30-year run

By Christina Good VoiceThe longest running Indian public affairs television program in the United States airs for the last time Sept. 5.

“Inside Native America,” the Native American current events show that airs on CBS affiliate KOTV Channel 6 in Tulsa, was cancelled in the spring.

The show is hosted by Muscogee (Creek) citizen George Tiger, a well-known public figure who has been in the media industry for more than three decades.

“I was told back in March that the networks were asking more time from its affiliates and since basically “Inside Native America was the only show of its kind in the Tulsa market, they made the decision to cancel my show,” Tiger said.
