As your local TV station, NCTV17 wants to tell YOUR story – and there are lots of ways we can.

A social media post, a mention in our daily video update Naperville Now, a segment in our weekly news show Naperville News 17, or a featured package in (630) Naperville are all options.

Just send us information about a newsworthy event, person or place and any supporting photos/video/visuals you may have (2 GB limit), and we’ll take it from there.

Fill out the form below, and give us the who/what/when/where/how/why, and a reporter will be in touch if we need more information or decide to expand the story. For events, advanced notice is needed in order to schedule a reporter, so please submit those at least one week ahead of time.

Thanks for your submission.  We look forward to sharing your story!
