Production


City Channel 4 has recorded and made videos available to those living in the Iowa City area for over 30 years - covering everything from City Council meetings to Ped Mall concerts, panel discussions to PSAs, lectures, interviews, community events, and much more. Members of the City’s Cable TV Office team use their creativity and skills, along with professional audio and video tools, to record and present high-quality, local programming on cable TV at City Channel 4 and here at citychannel4.com.

Media production services are available to City of Iowa City departments and divisions as well as to 501c3 non-profit organizations who serve the residents of Iowa City. If you represent a non-profit organization and would like to request that the City’s Cable TV Office staff record your upcoming community event, start the conversation by submitting details in the form below.

Providing these details will help us to provide the best possible coverage of your event or activity.

Tell us about your location

Depending on the production, we will generally need access to an event location one to two hours prior to the beginning of an event to begin setting up our equipment. You should verify that the location will be accessible for us to do this. While it is not necessary for you to be present when we begin setting up for a production, it is helpful to know the time at which we can expect you or your members to arrive, should we have any questions or concerns.






How can we help publicize your organization?

This information will be included in the program itself to direct viewers to more information about the subject matter or about your organization.
