Cape Media News is a hyperlocal television news broadcast that covers issues that matter to Cape Cod.
Launched in April 2017, Cape Media News has covered hundreds of local stories on housing, the economy, water quality, local politics, the opioid crisis, education, environmental issues, community events, public safety, quality of life, and so much more.
Our reporters are Cape Codders who have a deep love for the region and a commitment to providing honest, educational, informative news to our residents.
We hope that the hundreds of thousands of visitors that come to Cape Cod find value in our newscasts, and take us back home to stay connected to the region.
