City of Dallas wins awards in government programming – Dallas City News

The City of Dallas recently took home four awards for continued excellence in equitably engaging residents through quality video telecommunications.
On Nov. 3, the City of Dallas’ Communication, Outreach and Marketing Department was recognized by the Texas Association of Telecommunication Officers and Advisors (TATOA) in four Government Programming Award (GPA) categories.
Overall Excellence category is the “crown jewel” of the GPAs, recognizing both variety and impact of a jurisdiction’s overall programming.
“The City of Dallas is honored to be recognized by professionals from cities across the state,” said City Manager T.C. Broadnax. “Our goal is to continue making government television innovative, equitable, engaging and valuable. I believe these awards demonstrate excellence worthy of Dallas residents, and I’m excited for our future.”
 TATOA is a professional non-profit association dedicated to educating and training its members in the development, regulation and administration of cable television, internal communications networks and other telecommunications systems to more efficiently serve local government and the public. The 2022 Texas conference was held in McAllen from Nov. 3 to Nov. 4.
“If you look at the competition at the national level with NATOA, it’s clear Texas has some of the strongest government access programmers in the country,” said Brian Plinck, Video Production and Operations Manager, and TATOA Board of Directors Programming Representative.
 Dallas’ Communications, Outreach and Marketing team runs operates City of Dallas Television, four government access cable channels informing, educating, and engaging City of Dallas residents and stakeholders with local government.  Several recent initiatives among the award-winning entries were the launch of an all-Spanish-language channel and grand opening of the $11 Million Public, Education and Government (PEG)-funded Fair Park Multimedia Center.
City of Dallas Television is broadcast live on Spectrum Cable channels 16, 95 (in Spanish), 96, & 99; AT&T U-Verse channel 99; and bit.ly/cityofdallastv. All videos may also be viewed on-demand at YouTube.com/CityofDallasCityHall.
