In 1992, City leaders believed that the Woodland community would benefit greatly by having a forum to air and view local events and issues facing its citizens, so they forged a PEG (Public, Educational, and Government) station with the incoming cable service.
Since then, and with upgrades in technology to a digital format, Woodland TV has moved to providing 24-7 on-air programming. WTV has digitized hundreds of hours of old VHS and DVD format programs, which were the mainstay of our previous on-air programming, and have now included that historic programming in our current library. Additionally, WTV supplements local on-air programming by utilizing programming from other PEG stations across the US, which enables WTV Channel 21 to air at least 2 first run programs daily.
Woodland TV is a non-profit corporation whose primary purpose is to empower individuals, organizations and groups within Woodland to produce and/or present their own non-commercial cable programs. Local programming reflecting the full and diverse range of Woodland residents, their perspectives, concerns and interests is encouraged. Woodland TV coordinates training, production, playback and promotional activities to achieve their efforts.
Woodland TV also maintains an on-air community bulletin board that plays between all shows which includes: slides or short videos of local non-commercial events, organizations, and programs that the community may benefit from.
Contact Woodland TV to post a community bulletin board event or if you're interested in getting involved with your local public access TV station. Currently there are several very devoted public access volunteers who serve the community by giving hundreds of hours of their time to bring local events to the airwaves. We provide training to all levels of volunteers.
