The City of Laurel has a local Public Access Channel, Laurel TV, airing on Verizon FiOS Channel 12 and Comcast Channel 996 in (HD) and on Comcast 71 in (SD). Its purpose is to keep residents, business owners and visitors informed about all things Laurel.  The station relies heavily on Volunteers in the community to shoot and edit stories on local events.


Laurel TV offers training in photography and editing and has television equipment the community can borrow to shoot their own programs once they have gone through the proper training. Laurel TV also airs all government meetings. Community event notices are broadcast on the station's bulletin board, in English and now in Spanish too.

If you have a program idea or an interest in learning more about the broadcast industry, please call 301-725-5300 ext. 2110. Click below to get a Volunteer Application for Laurel TV  or visit the website.
