McCollough was leaving the NBC affiliate in Rochester, NY in the fall of 2002 and began to search for something to do for the rest of his life, but it had to help people in some profound way. He came up with AATV to help and inform people. "I have invested a great deal of my own money, time and effort in the past 10 years, because I believe in the need", he says. "I had conversations about my goals over the years with a number of people in the community from Dr. Al Simone, now Former President of RIT, Dr. Alan Hurwitz, President of NTID, Dr. Harold Mowl, Principal at RSD, Dr. Robert Panara, Professor Emeritus at NTID, Susan Miller and the late Marcia Dugan from Hearing Loss Association of America as well as grass roots activists in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community and they all have pledged support for my effort, because they know I am sincere and very determined to make it a reality". McCollough says further "for decades the Deaf and Hard of Hearing have been neglected and underserved when it comes to broadcast programming, but now AATV is a new source to help fill the gap in programming".
