LCTV is a community media organization with more than a 20-year track record. LCTV’s media center, located in Newcastle, broadcasts 24/7 and reaches approximately 5,000 households in 10 communities; Alna, Bristol, Damariscotta, Dresden, Edgecomb, Newcastle, Nobleboro, Waldoboro, Westport Island and Wiscasset. Locally produced shows (Video on Demand) and the Bulletin Board can also be seen on our website by anyone, anywhere with access to a computer with high speed internet.
LCTV provides training and the equipment needed to produce television - from live studio shows to field videography to video editing - free of charge to individuals who reside, work, go to school or volunteer in our service area. The LCTV Bulletin Board is made available at no charge to non-profit, community and governmental organizations.
Viewers benefit from the diverse coverage supplied by local producers of government meetings and programming about history and heritage, music and arts, health, environment, sports, comedy, education, senior citizen and youth topics. LCTV also provides viewers with alternative media produced nationally by those affiliated with other public access stations and non-commercial production companies.
LCTV is primarily funded by the towns in our service area. As a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization, we also depend upon gifts and grants from private and public foundations, individual donors, and our Sponsorship Program.
LCTV has a lot to offer to those who participate in it and those who support it. To remain a vibrant community service, LCTV needs community participation and your financial support.
