The War Memorial has offered community television for more than two decades to Comcast, WOW and AT&T subscribers in the cities of Grosse Pointe Park, Grosse Pointe City, Grosse Pointe Farms, Grosse Pointe Woods, Grosse Pointe Shores and Harper Woods.
Previously known as Community Television Services, the station began an intense campaign in 2000 to revamp its look and line-up by promoting itself as WMTV as well as investing in new sets, a new logo and new shows. An upgrade to the equipment enabled WMTV to be on the air 24 hours and expand its technical capabilities. There are now fourteen 30 minute programs from talk to cooking with target audiences crossing every age group. Show hosts volunteer their time and on-air talent. The shows are produced in the Grosse Pointe War Memorial’s television studio by a full time operations manager and two full time video production assistants. Through consistent self-evaluation, WMTV continues its effort to be on the cutting edge of providing local programming to the communities of Grosse Pointe and Harper Woods.
