The LTN programming philosophy is to serve its viewers with useful information and a variety of material not available on most television stations. This not only provides information to West Virginians about issues in the community, but it affords them an opportunity to actually see officials from various agencies and to better understand the inner workings of those agencies.
From humble beginnings in 1977, the Library Television Network has evolved into a state-of-the-art, broadcast-quality television studio. Over the years, the Network has expanded its programming and linked with local and statewide cable companies to greatly increase our viewership around the state.
LTN produces programs ranging from the Department of Agriculture to the Treasurer’s Office and some private sector programming. Approximately twenty-four programs are produced per month and only three programs from outside affiliates. Each show airs a total of twenty times per month on our local transmission to Suddenlink Communications on channel 17 and two to four times a month on the statewide cable companies. These programs are also available through one hundred and forty public libraries around the state and via our streaming video page. This page has recently been open to the public so our programming can be viewed from any computer on the West Virginia Library Commission’s web site.
