Have you always wanted to host your own television talk show? Perhaps your dream is to demonstrate your skill as a yoga or dance instructor or teach members of the community how to dress for success. Whether your passion is art or wine or something in between, we can help you produce a program. You don’t have to be a member to submit a single program; but, if you plan on submitting a series of shows, membership is required.

If you have an idea for a program, give us a call at 530-272-8862  or email us at stationmanager@nevadacountytv.org. We can help you turn your idea into a reality.
