Bellevue Television, Channel 21, is Bellevue's government access cable channel. The channel provides important information to the public about local government, including live and recorded broadcasts of City Council, information about the state Legislature and forums, arts, culture, education, local community events and special programming on issues of importance to Bellevue residents, businesses and visitors.
Bellevue Television is operated through a partnership between the city and Bellevue College. Both organizations share in the costs of operating a state-of-the-art studio facility. The city has access to student crews for additional staffing support. The college is able to provide advanced-track students with hands-on training and "real world" experience.
Bellevue Television has received more than a dozen awards from the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors. In 2006, 2007 and 2009, “It’s Your City” took first place in the magazine format category; it took second in 2008.
