The City’s Garden Grove TV3 (GGTV3) cable division has been recently honored with top state and national awards and recognitions for various video productions.

One of the highest distinctions received is for first-place in Programming Excellence, by the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA), at the 31st Annual Government Programming Awards, on September 22, 2016.

The NATOA Government Programming Awards recognize local government agencies for excellence in broadcast, cable, multimedia, and electronic programming. Of GGTV3’s six entries, five were nominated and received placement.

At the regular City Council meeting of October 11, 2016, the City Council recognized and congratulated GGTV3’s only full-time senior staff, Jeff Davis and Marie Moran, on winning the NATOA Programming Excellence award.

“The City couldn’t be more proud of their achievements,” said City Manager Scott Stiles, at the City Council meeting.

GGTV3 also took home the gold in five categories in the Western Access Video Excellence Awards, and received two Emmy nominations from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Pacific Southwest Chapter

Davis and Moran play an important role in supporting City departments, and in the City’s efforts to inform and entertain Garden Grove residents. They produce a number of videos, news stories, and Public Service Announcements, as well as live broadcasts of all City Council meetings through GGTV3’s YouTube Channel. GGTV3 programs Channel 3 on Time Warner Cable in Garden Grove.
