Channel 16, the county’s government television station, is part of the county’s Department of Cable Communications and Consumer Protection.

Channel 16 programs “Information Avenue” and “Your Community, Your Call,” a live format program focusing on homeowners’ association issues, both received top awards. “Information Avenue” was recognized in the information feature category while “Your Community, Your Call” was recognized as the best in the live format category.

Channel 16 also received two honorable mentions in the national awards program, winning in the Public Service Announcement and Short Subject categories. The station’s dog license PSA and a feature on Clemyjontri Park were both honored.
