National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors Honors Madison City Channel

The mission of NATOA is to support and serve the telecommunication interests and needs of local governments. Each year, NATOA recognizes the "best" local government programming as part of its Annual Conference. Entries are judged on the basis of creativity in achieving stated objectives, technical proficiency and diversity of programming.

The Madison City Channel, YOUR local government access television station, has brought home numerous awards for our programming. We are proud to offer our viewers and the residents of Madison some of the the best local programming on the cable dial.
