WCTV is an all-volunteer, non-profit community television group from the Township of Washington, NJ. We are funded by franchise fees from cable systems in our area and by generous donations. Our studio, control room and editing facilities are in the Municipal Complex, where we can broadcast live on Altice USA/Optimum Channel 77 (only in Washington Township and Westwood) and to many towns in New Jersey on Verizon Fios' Channel 24. Programs usually air on these channels Mondays and Fridays at 8pm.
WCTV volunteers produce regularly scheduled shows, community events, concerts as well as youth and high school sports. Township Council meetings air live and when there is no programming, the WCTV DIGITAL BULLETIN BOARD informs viewers of local news and events. This service is free of charge to non-profits, schools, community groups and area attractions.
WCTV currently broadcasts weekly in Northern New Jersey on Altice USA/Optimum Channel 76 on Mondays at 7pm. If you miss our broadcasts on cable, you can watch our programs anywhere on the Internet! Our videos are uploaded frequently to our YouTube.com channel WCTVNJ. Program airdates are posted on Twitter and Facebook @WCTVNJ
EXIT 168 is a talk/variety program that originates in our TV studio and features guests and topics of local interest.

WCTV is an All-Volunteer, non-profit community organization with NO political affiliation.
Earlier this fall, WCTV Volunteers contacted the NJ League of Women Voters about moderating an impartial debate with the candidates running for Mayor & Council in the Township. League procedure requires the two political parties to request the debate and make the necessary arrangements for hosting it.
WCTV forwarded this information and the Bergen County contact’s phone number to the Republican and Independent candidates in mid-September to arrange the details.
To date, we have not been notified of any debate.
The Volunteers of WCTV are not journalists, however, we offered each of the candidates five minutes to discuss their platform and goals, but this was not unanimously accepted.
Should you - THE VOTER - have any questions, please contact the candidates directly so that you can make a responsible and an informed decision.
WCTV welcomes volunteers of all ages. No experience is necessary and there are no fees involved. Our volunteers play a vital role in the production of local community programming, while learning the basics of video production. Have some fun too !
