While the Stay-at-Home order continues, TCMedia is working hard to facilitate local communications and share information. 

Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater City council meetings are now held virtually but carried live on Channel 3 and 26. Our staff is producing a series of interviews with our elected officials and community leaders called "Stay Safe, Thurston County." 

All of the TCMedia channels are now streaming LIVE.  You can click on the 'Streaming Now' button on this website and pick the channel you want to watch.  

Every Wednesday at 5pm we hold a Zoom-In for TCMedia members.  These virtual training sessions cover different tools and techniques for making media in this very challenging time. 

It's a challenging time for all of us and we're looking forward to being able to see our members and communtiy face to face/.  

In the meantime, stay home, stay safe, wash your hands.

Governor Inslee has issued a Stay At Home order that takes effect March 25, 2020. As a result, the TCMedia facility will remain closed to the public and for member services through at least April 12, 2020.  

Most of our staff is working from home. A skeleton staff is at the studio to continue programming TCMedia channels 3, 22, 26 and 77.

As this situation evolves, we will continue to collect and share information with the community.  We're working with local government to provide coverage of meetings using virtual meeting tools when necessary, and our friends at TVW are sharing their video of Governor Inslee's press conferences.  

Check the readerboard messages on the channels or in the Connect section of or website for event cancellations, helpful information from agencies and nonprofit organizations, or other COVID-19 related information.

This is a challenging time for all of us.  We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to the day when we reopen for regular operations.  

Stay home, stay healthy!.
