About KCM

Knoxville Community Media (KCM), formerly Community Television of Knoxville (CTV), is on of the oldest public access television stations in the nation.  After 47 years of serving the local community, KCM has decided to rebrand and re-envision who we are and what we do.

KCM will continue to offer Public, Educational, and Government Programming.  Our new vision will help us become an integral part of this community’s story.  Collaborations with cultural, social, arts, and educational organizations and our relationships with the citizens and government bodies of Knoxville and Knox County will support free thought, free expression, creativity, activism, education, and leadership.  The stories you tell are a part of our goal to create connections that help us gain a deeper understanding of each other through information, entertainment, and participation.

As an organization whose foundation is media, KCM wants to build community on that foundation through those stories.  By cablecasting, publishing, social media, and person to person dialogue, display, and performance, KCM feels that these forms of communication will nurture empathy and engagement.

Stay tuned to discover the exciting new programming we will be offering in the coming years, including workshops, performances, screenings, new television programs, and many more events.

Regular Office Hours are 9 am – 5 pm (Mon – Fri), but the actual hours of operation are subject to change on a daily basis based on production demands and the needs of our producers. Experience has shown that training workshops are best scheduled on an individual basis at times convenient to the producers, rather than creating set schedules that may or may not be convenient for everyone. Producers reserve studio equipment, portable cameras and editing suites using our computerized facility management reservation system. Our system has the capacity to cross check availability in real time and schedule reservations months ahead. Producers of regular series programs take advantage of this system by scheduling production facilities & equipment at the same regular time every month. This makes it much more convenient for them to recruit program guests and produce their shows.
