Welcome to TooeleTV!

Tooele County is a great place to live, work, and play. There are interesting people here doing fascinating things. Our neighbors are involved in education, work, and community activities that affect many of us. We would like to help tell these stories in a visually interesting way. When we learn new things it may lead us to a new hobby, job, friendships, or a better understanding of each other.

The Internet makes it possible for us to produce and distribute video programs about local topics that you can watch at your convenience. Video allows us to see and hear the people in the story and watch them demonstrate the things they are doing.

At a later date we plan on adding a "Community Roundtable" feature where topics of common interest can be discussed by community members.

The goals of TooeleTV:
  • tell the stories of people and events in Tooele County
  • share information from local experts
  • help develop local skills and talent
  • publicize government resources
  • promote local business
