Nantucket Community Television (NCTV18) is working toward becoming an important and vital grassroots journalism resource for all of the residents and visitors on Nantucket.  The station is a unique resource: it is already serving critical information needs on the Island, such as island governmental meetings and emergency broadcasts on local TV channel 18, as well as providing communications to the world via our digital channels.

Currently, we are producing shows that capture the voices of community leaders.  Additionally, we are in production with original programming focused on topics like history, health, and community interests, as well as capturing “fire-side stories” for future generations.

Part of our mission is two-fold: to provide knowledge, factual depth, and educational interests, and also to capture and broadcast Nantucket’s rich history and cultural importance. With financial support, we will continue to contribute to community building and will spark innovation through new programs for all Nantucket residents, year-round or seasonal, and including visitors to our island.

NCTV18 is the principal television channel for the island of Nantucket. We are a community public access, PEG (public, education and government) station, non-profit 501(c)3. This designation means we focus our broadcasts on public, educational, and governmental matters. We are also known as the island’s media arts center because we are the go-to resource for educational classes and workshops for adult and youth students that teach the foundation of multimedia and communication design. Professionals teaching at NCTV are available for mentoring students focused on media arts and communication design who are working on portfolios required for university applications.

We serve as a crucial media partner to many of the Island non-profits, including the Town of Nantucket and the Nantucket Public Schools.
