About Us

VTV was started in 1998 by a group of students looking to develop a way to expand the creative horizons for students on campus. Over the years, VTV has become one of the largest media groups on campus and is involved in many events that happen at Villanova.  The station is always on air on a closed circuit channel - VTV 17.
