As DC's only station devoted entirely to local programming, DCTV provides a platform that amplifies local voices across a wide range of issues. In what is now dubbed DCTV 2.0, the station is creating original programming as well. A new docuseries explores the state of early childhood education in DC and the first two seasons of “District Life” focus on local stories, highlight nonprofits, and showcase communities and individuals throughout the District. A capacity building program provides media instruction, video production, and storytelling training to nonprofits (over 100 in the last three years), and DCTV produces its own video content to showcase their work. DC residents also have access to the station’s television production studios, equipment, and editing suites so that they can create meaningful television content themselves – to tell their stories and share them with the community in which they live.
