New Logo

As a tangible outward sign of our commitment to changing MTN for the better, we're pleased to introduce our new logo.
 
Intended to be an evocative symbol of our new outlook and vision—Is it an abstracted "M" shape? An open seed pod? A blooming flower?—we hope you'll come to associate the vibrancy of Minneapolis with it. If you have any comments or suggestions, or would like to volunteer or find out more about what we have planned in coming months at MTN, please don't hesitate to contact us at michael@mtn.org.

Channel Changes

Beginning on February 1, MTN is reorganizing, revamping, and renaming its three channels! The goal of this change is to create something of clear value to the city of Minneapolis, and to provide the best possible service to our producers and viewers. Here's a run down of what you can now expect to see when you tune in to MTN:

Channel 16

Name: CONNECT
Program subject areas: Community affairs/events, government & politics, local issues, public conversations, news & information

Channel 17

Name: CREATE
Program subject areas: Arts & leisure, lifestyle topics (including sports, documentaries & slice-of-life, humor &
comedy, food & cooking, families and parenthood, etc.), youth & education

Channel 75

Name: INSPIRE
Program subject areas: Spiritual & religious programming, questions of philosophy & existence


The Minneapolis Television Network is accepting submissions for the "Thirteen Ways of Looking at Minneapolis" TV series that will run—on the newly revamped Channel 17—throughout 2013. If you have a short clip to submit NOW -- before February 15 -- your work could be featured in one of the first two episodes of "Thirteen Ways of Looking at Minneapolis," and could also get screened at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival! For details on how you can submit, please visit: http://mtn.org/Video/community/13ways.html. If you have questions about this opportunity and how to take advantage of it, please contact us at michael@mtn.org.
