'California Connected' calls it quits

Tonight's show is the last, at least for now. "After five seasons and 154 shows from Yreka in the north to Baja in the south to the Eastern Sierras of Alpine County to Mendocino in the west and to all points in between, California Connected is going off the air. We simply do not have the funding to bring you a sixth season. Death and taxes may be a certainty, but funding in public television is not," executive producer Bret Marcus announces on the show's website.
