Local TV station to broadcast coverage of Olympia

WENATCHEE — Curious about what’s happening in state government?

TVW, the nonprofit public affairs TV station in Olympia, is now available here through a broadcast signal by Apple Valley TV.

“This makes us the second TV station in the state to bring TVW to homes without using cable, fiber or satellite TV services,” said Lonnie England, chief engineer for Apply Valley TV, the area’s primary provider of broadcast television. “We’re also the first TV station east of the Cascades to carry TVW on one of its sub-channels.”

England said the signal can be picked up via antenna in most of the Wenatchee Valley, Rock Island, Malaga, Quincy, George, Crescent Bar and wide area of the Columbia Basin.

Founded in 1995, TVW produces more than 2,000 hours annually of original coverage of the state legislature, agencies and commissions, the state Supreme Court and government events. Apple Valley TV rebroadcasts network television stations from Spokane and hosts local shows on its own independent station. The community-supported company asks for membership dues of $60 per year.
