CCOM was able to use media issues to get disparate community groups throughout the metropolitan area to work together, which helped to set up the historic Mayor Harold Washington elections.
Organizations that followed CCOM into organizing around media issues include: Chicago Media Action. Chicago Progressive Media Network. Chicago Citizens Cable Coalition. Latino Committee on the Media. Latino Cable Coalition. Community Media Workshop / Public Narrative. Chicago Access Corporation / CANTV. Committee for Labor Access / Labor Beat. And others.
