Beaufort County's work on the County Channel has won an award for government openness from the National Association of Counties.
Since 2006, the channel has evolved into a 24-hour broadcast that airs local-government board meetings, youth sports games and original programming such as the "Coastal Kingdom" nature series.
The channel is carried by each cable provider in Beaufort County and is streamed online at www.bcgov.net.
