Did you know that NCTV17 has been informing, engaging, and connecting our community since 1987? You see, NCTV17 believes, and has always believed, that local news, sports and community events matter.

That’s why you see daily news headlines in NCTV17 News Update, or stories about local schools, government, and neighborhoods in Naperville News 17. It’s why high school athletics are showcased in Naperville Sports Weekly and why local businesses and nonprofit organizations are able to sit down on original TV Talk Shows like Business Connection or Spotlight and market themselves. It is also why you see the arts celebrated through our community event coverage.

Over the last three decades, as Naperville has grown, so has NCTV17. As the world of media has evolved, so has NCTV17. Today you have many options for accessing NCTV17’s hyper-local content:
