Naperville Community Television (NCTV17)

Founded in 1987, Naperville Community Television (NCTV17) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, delivering hyper-local television coverage of the people, places and perspectives that matter to Naperville area residents. The television station covers local elections, puts viewers curbside at parades, and showcases a wide variety of community events, performances and presentations.

The television station regularly produces talk shows that discuss business, careers, nonprofits, lifestyle issues and much more. Plus each week, we produce:

Naperville News 17 (NN17): From a local perspective on national news to issues from Naperville City Hall, NN17 keeps residents informed about what’s happening each week within the Naperville area.

Naperville Sports Weekly (NSW): Starting with the opening kick-off in football through the finish line of track, NSW covers both boys’ and girls’ varsity sports from all six local area high schools. NSW brings fans the highlights, interviews, and stories not seen on any other television station.
