Trumbull Community Television

Trumbull Community Television (TCTV) is a small town-specific TV station located in the local public high school.

The State of Connecticut set aside educational access TV channels when cable TV franchises were granted.

This gave towns and schools the opportunity to broadcast hyper-local and educational programming.

In 2003 the Town of Trumbull Cable Advisory Committee was formed with the mission to “ensure that the residents of Trumbull have excellent cable television” through “the creation, airing and viewing of community access programming that presents news and information specific to the community.”

In 2017, the Trumbull Town Council established the Trumbull Education and Government Access Television Commission to continue the mission of Trumbull Community Television.
