Yvette Cadeaux: ‘NCTV Talk’ debut
December 15, 2016
Welcome to "NCTV Talk," a new column about your community TV station: Nevada County Television and Digital Media Center, also known as NCTV.
After a busy summer spent moving out of our prior residence in downtown Grass Valley, we are feeling happily settled at our new location in the Green Screen Institute, located at 104 New Mohawk Drive in Nevada City.
Exciting changes are underway at NCTV studios, including a weekly live stream of "The Golden Road Show," which can be seen most Sundays at 6 p.m. on Comcast Channel 11 and Suddenlink Channel 16.
Michael DiMartino, host and creator, says the show "explores the intersection of the arts, the environment, culture, health, and technology."
The next show to be produced locally is set for this Sunday, and features the music of Chicago Park Jazz Society and the World Beatnix.
Sunday's episode is a collaboration between NCTV and KVMR and will be aired live from KVMR's Community Room beginning at 3 pm.

Local issues debated at the county or city level and aired on our government channel make a riveting and relevant television viewing experience.
NCTV is also your community public access station. This means that community members can actively participate in our programming by submitting video content. We welcome submissions that focus on local events and items of interest to Nevada County residents. Producers can access our website to find the necessary submission and underwriter disclosure forms.
In future columns, we will go into more detail about what it means to be an independent producer at NCTV, guidelines for program underwriting, as well as the latest news and views on programming, special events, and fundraisers. We will also highlight board members, staff, volunteers, and the community members who help define and shape NCTV.
