Autumn Labbe-Renault

Davis Media Access
Executive Director
Davis, CA
Autumn Labbé-Renault is the Executive Director of Davis Media Access (DMA), a community media center located in Davis, CA. She began her career as a newspaper reporter and editor; worked in development and public affairs for Planned Parenthood; and has spent the past 16 years using media tools to build capacity and community in Davis. She’s worn many hats within DMA and has served as its ED since 2007, leading the charge to transform a single public access channel into a community anchor institution supporting local content creation, archiving and distribution via television, radio and the Internet.

Autumn was one of the principals who developed and launched KDRT-LP, the low-power FM station run by Davis Media Access, and she led the successful community engagement campaign that helped save the station from commercial encroachment in 2008. DMA (then called Davis Community Television) was the first public access center in the nation to launch an LPFM.

She regularly produces programming for DCTV Channel 15, including local election programming, and has hosted both public affairs and music shows on KDRT. She writes a long-running monthly column on media and telecommunications policy in The Davis Enterprise and has been published in a wide range of media journals, online media, and other periodicals. Home is with her husband, three teenagers, a small menagerie, and lots of books and art supplies.
