MVTV-3 wins two 1st place awards

Moreno Valley’s government access cable television channel, MVTV-3, has won two regional awards from the States of California and Nevada Chapter of the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors - more commonly known as SCAN NATOA.

MVTV-3 won a first place Star Award in the Economic Development category for “Moreno Valley: We Mean Business.” SCAN NATOA also awarded a first place Star Award in the Public Safety category for “Safety 1st: Home Burglary Prevention.”

Residents will be able to watch these videos later this year when MVTV-3 begins streaming their content over the Internet.
