As a part of OCTFME's duties, it produces programming and provides coverage of events and proceedings that concern the District government and community. OCTFME provides coverage of hearings and proceedings before the Council of the District of Columbia, events organized by the Mayor and executive branch government agencies, and other events that take place within the District of Columbia.
