The "In Touch with Durham County Government Show" provides governmental programming and access to your local government and provides timely, ongoing coverage of Durham County Government through the Government Access Television program.

"In Touch with Durham County," now airs daily on DTN (Durham Television Network)/ Cable Channel 97-5 and can be watched on demand at http://www.dconc.gov/index.aspx?page=60.

This new show replaces the former Durham County Government Show that viewers have enjoyed since 1991. Assistant County Manager Deborah Craig-Ray hosts the show. Occasionally a member of the Durham County Board of Commissioners co-hosts as well. 


The purpose of the show is to share relevant, timely information from Durham County community partner agencies, as well as provide interviews with elected officials, county department heads and key staff.
