Tuning In To Naperville For 25 Years
Naperville Community Television, Channel 17 (NCTV17) is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year, and we decided to turn the tables on ourselves and produce a documentary about the history of NCTV17! Established in 1987, NCTV17 began as a public access television station, providing an environment for local residents and volunteers to share their stories and ideas.
It established the idea of community producers who spread out across the city to cover its happenings. In the last 25 years technology has changed the world, Naperville and NCTV17 ...helping it grow from a core group of dedicated community producers to an award-winning community television station. Find out how NCTV17 has been tuning into Naperville for 25 years!
Naperville Recollections:“Naperville Tragedies” details the events of the 1922 fire at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, the 1952 missing children, and the 1946 train wreck. These pivotal events helped define the strength of the Naperville community.
