Citizens Television, Inc. History
A private, independent, tax-exempt, not-for-profit corporation, CTV was founded in 1991 by a diverse group of community activists who were long-frustrated by the poor public access of Storer Cable. These activists petitioned the CT Department of Public Utility Control (DPUC, now PURA) for CTV to become the provider of community television access. Winning that assignment, CTV opened its offices in 1992 at 873 State St. in New Haven, and embarked on its now twenty-year mission of training community residents in field and studio video production. In 2004, CTV moved to 2666 State Street in Hamden.
IIn July of 2013, CTV purchased the former veterinarry hospital building at 843 State St., and moved into its now permanent location in December, 2013.
