About PCTV

PCTV logo large
Government is more than an institution - government is people, our friends and neighbors, dedicated to providing the services that make our communities thrive. Whether elected, appointed or hired, these folks work hard and wrestle with thorny issues and problems. Too often, their tenacity and successes are overlooked and go unnoticed.

Pierce County Television

(PCTV) tells these stories. From the common to the extraordinary, we spotlight and highlight the people and activities of local government so you can see and participate in the process. PCTV's programming includes unedited, gavel-to-gavel meeting coverage; original news; public affairs and community affairs and other locally produced programs and specials.
