In the late 1970's the Kellog Foundation laid the ground work to develop community programming and educational closed circuit television to our communities. The initial goal was to provide the school districts with a communication line to allow for the sharing of resources.
Now, almost forty years later, the project has grown into the local entity known as TCCTV. TCCTV has evolved over this time period to best serve its communities. Internet access and smart classrooms have taken the place of two-way interconnect systems-however-the best way for community events and news to reach the large range of residents in our viewing area remains our public access channels 18 and 8 as offered by Tri-County Communications. As residents of this viewing area we should feel privileged to have such a resource available to us.
TCCTV allows us to stay connected to our schools, churches, local government and community events. It brings local current events into our home and archives memorable moments from high school sporting events to the latest in local government news.
