I program two Community Access stations, and yes Tribune has to be paid 
to enter station data.  The cable co that carries us locally agreed to 
pay some years ago, and for years, I submitted a word file (!) for 
Tribune to apparently retype into their application.  That got updated 
every week, then it got passed onto another person at Tribune, they no 
longer reply to my email or update the listings I send.  So we have 
listings on Tribune, but it is a few years old!

I don't have budget for any fancy dedicated application to create the 
schedule, it is created in excel, and imported into our playback system 
and a linked access table for printed reports.  I have been giving 
Tribune the excel sheet since they finally told me that would make their 
life easier.
