The Hilo based community access television station secured the top spot in the Access Center Professional Division, Spiritual/Inspirational Category, with the submission of “ʻIke Pono – Episode 3,” which has a segment highlighting the fantastic story and mission of Camp Agape.

“We’re thankful and honored to have received this recognition,” said Stacy K. Higa, president and CEO of NLTV. “We will continue to create hyper-local programming that our island community can enjoy and be proud of.”

NLTV is no stranger to recognition for its excellent content. In March of 2018, NLTV won 1st place in the ACM Western Region’s WAVE Awards for its submission of “ʻIke Pono – Episode 1,” a program covering the good news and uplifting stories on Hawaiʻi Island.


The 2018 Hometown Media Awards was presented during the annual Alliance for Community Media conference, themed “Be More,” which took place on July 11-13, 2018, in Baltimore, Maryland.

The winning episode can be watched via video-on-demand via the online website, or by downloading the mobile application available for both Android and iOS devices as well as on the ACM website’s list of winners.
