Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In these times of 24 hour news cycle and the inability to discern credible news sources, NCTV17 aims to keep people in the know and put a local perspective on national and city issues. We look in-depth at the people and neighborhoods of our community, and keep residents informed on everything from news to sports.

Produced through a partnership between the Naperville Moms Network and NCTV17, The Naperville Moms Network is a new half-hour mom-focused talk show hosted by Dr. Cathy Subber.

This dynamic mother of two teenage boys owns a chiropractic practice in town, was the Chairman of the Board for the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce and is currently the Chief Mama of the online Naperville Moms Network – a position she’s held since 2012.
With the goal of supporting and empowering moms as they navigate life’s ups and downs, Dr. Cathy will
bring to television the conversations that take place among 15,000 local moms online and through
networking and social events!

Joining Dr. Cathy are five local moms, each of whom are at different stages of the motherhood journey.

Together with Dr. Cathy, these moms will talk about their own personal experiences as moms and women. Viewers will hear about what’s worked – and not worked – what keeps them up at night - or gets them up in the morning. With both some good pragmatic advice – and a healthy dose of humor these four dynamic moms will explore the many challenges and blessings of being a mother.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

As the fourth largest city in Illinois with over 145,000 residents, Naperville has grown very quickly over the time NCTV17 has been in existence. The station has continued to evolve in order to meet the needs of our ever-growing, and increasingly diverse community.

However, our primary organizational mission is to help residents stay connected to their community through shared stories.

As the only TV station completely focused on Naperville, the station is committed to providing residents with current information about what is happening in all sectors of their city.

Each year NCTV17 strategically assesses the programming we plan to produce and air on the channel to ensure it delivers on the station's mission for our viewers. Every week, the station produces a wide variety of regularly scheduled programming including news, high school and college sports, business talk shows, interviews with Naperville "notables", profiles of not-for-profit organizations, conversations with well known authors, as well as community event coverage. More than 35 individual videos stories are produced on a weekly basis that showcase the many aspects of the Naperville community.

By staying true to our guiding principles NCTV17 will meet its goals.

* We tell local stories of significance that both inform and engage the community while simultaneously preserving Naperville's history for generations to come.

* We distribute stories in the format and on the platforms that meet the needs of the community.

* We provide educational opportunities for residents to fulfill intended purpose of PEG (internships, crew, scout tours, classes)

* We engage the community in their local public-access channel.

NCTV17 has been broadcasting in Naperville for 30 years and has grown into a premier source of information, education and entertainment for this community. Focused on local people, organizations, and events, NCTV17 represents the faces and places of our neighborhoods. The line-up of TV programming is strategically designed to represent all facets of the community and all seven geographical sectors. From news to high school sports to business talk shows to documentaries, NCTV17 provides broad coverage and spotlights what makes Naperville a one-of-a-kind community. Over the past ten years, NCTV17 has evolved from its public access roots to become a true community television station, where a team of professional staff work with community members and student interns to create and broadcast programming that is beneficial to the entire community.
