TV Channel 10 Policy

The following is the City of Oak Harbor’s policy regarding Local Government
Channel 10.

TV Channel 10, the local government channel, is primarily used for providing information about City government operations. Currently, space is made available to provide written messages to the public regarding special community events, primarily for non-profit organizations. TV Channel 10 is managed by the City of Oak Harbor.

Informational messages are to be those of general interest to the public in conjunction with an event. No commercial messages, advertisements or videos from private organizations are allowed. Partisan political and religious messages will not be allowed. A political organization or a church may, however, provide an announcement for a special event.

To place an item of interest to the community on TV Channel 10:

  • Channel 10 forms are available at the front reception desk at City Hall or click here to dowload the form.  Please read instructions and fill out form completely.
  • The event to be advertised must be a special event, or a change in a regularly scheduled event. We cannot advertise business related commercials, religious, or political propaganda.
  • The event should be at least two weeks away. Please allow a week for the announcement to appear on the TV. The announcement will run for the two weeks prior to your event. Event announcements are accepted at all times. However, if the event is less than a week away, we cannot guarantee that it will appear on Channel 10.
  • The wording should be limited to 20 words or less, minor adjustments will be made, at our discretion.
  • List a contact person who can be reached in the event that we have a question about the announcement.
  • Announcements are input on Channel 10 approximately two to three times per week.
  • If your event has a flyer of the announcement, please save it as a jpeg.file and email it to: and if there isn’t a lot of text on the flyer we will try to publish the flyer of the event on Channel 10.

Announcements can be emailed to the City of Oak Harbor at: and in the subject line, please put Channel 10. Any questions, please call (360) 279-4500.
