Video Voice – Why NCTV17 matters

-

There are lots of choices of where to get your news and media these days. So, why should you seek out the local one? Why Naperville Community Television, (NCTV17)?

We may not have the flash of a WGN block party, but we are in the community day in and day out. We cover the stories of a local couple trying find a way to help their disabled adult son live a more normal life, the 100 year anniversary of the American Legion, a prayer event at the local Mosque and the national pickle ball tournament at Nike Park. Each of these stories is told to the best of our ability and more importantly they all come from the heart.

I am just as proud as everyone else when our town of Naperville appears on the national stage. However, sometimes people disregard the local press as if what we do is a little less important or somehow not the real thing. My team and I are the folks who go out to the local high school games, charity walks and will be there tomorrow after the national focus has moved to something else. We will see you at the next council meeting, at Rotary Hill for the Last Fling. You’ll see us on-air and online telling the story of a Mom who started a nonprofit to benefit cancer research because she lost her son to the disease.

During the 2019 Jaycees Labor Day Parade, Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Nicki Anderson joined Liz Spencer at the corner of Webster Street and Jefferson Avenue to provide the “entry-by-entry” color and commentary for the annual NCTV broadcast.

So, the next time you see a post from NCTV17, or catch a band concert on channel 17, please stop and take a moment to be proud of your town and the local team bringing you the collective stories of our daily lives in the town we call home.
