20 Years of CityTV

Video Series

In January 1998, the City of San Diego launched CityTV as the in-house service to broadcast City Council meetings and City programming on Channel 24, later adding an Internet live stream for mobile viewing. Twenty years later, CityTV has provided video coverage of nearly 3,000 public meetings, more than 800 news conferences and ceremonies, and has received recognition for excellence in government programming by the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA).
