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,"  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.

General Manager of Strategic Planning and Innovation Deborah Craig-Ray and Board of County Commissioners Chair Wendy Jacobs co-host the show.


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.

Show Details

In the September 2019 show, our hosts welcome are joined by General Manager and Public Health Director Gayle Harris in segment one, followed by Assistant Register of Deeds J.T. Tabron and Deputy Register of Deeds Sharon Marsh from the Register of Deeds Office in segment two.

Harris recently announced her retirement from Durham County Government. Can you imagine working in the same place for 47 years? Well, Harris has done just that at Durham County since graduating from college. Harris comes on to reflect on her distinguished time working for DCo!

Did you know that the Durham County Register of Deeds Office now is a passport acceptance facility? That means, by appointment only, U.S. citizens may now apply for their passports at the Register of Deeds Office in Downtown Durham (201 E. Main Street). Tabron and Marsh visit to discuss this new service and what citizens need to know before heading to the office!
