OCT’s “Washington Full Circle” to Air on NBC4 Television

Washington, DC Washington Full Circle – an original production of The District of Columbia Office of Cable Television (OCT) will be broadcast Saturdays at 7:30pm on NBC4 Washington beginning April 10.

The high-energy, fast paced, entertaining and informative program gives its viewers an all-access backstage pass to ALL things Washington. From music to theatre, fashion, travel, nightlife and everything in between, Washington Full Circle highlights the latest trends in Washington, DC’s people, places, things and so much more.

“The imagination, creativity and vibrancy of both the District and OCT’s dedicated staff are appropriately recognized by this constructive public/private partnership,” said Mayor Adrian M. Fenty. “This collaboration represents a unique opportunity to provide greater exposure of the District and its resources and offerings which is a win-win situation for all.”

Washington Full Circle Host Ferman Patterson and his award winning team of correspondents Tamika Felder, Cecily Fernandez, Kelly Carter Knight and Valikia Newsome - incorporate a lively mix of regular features that will take NBC4 viewers to a home-grown Washington that must be seen and seen again.

“We are very excited about this emerging partnership and hope to explore additional opportunities to work with OCT for the benefit of the District community,” said NBC4 General Manager Michael Jack.

“We’ve discovered and revisited a number of amazing places and spaces here in the District and hope that this production will be seen as not only an entertaining half hour but as a tool and resource for residents and tourists,” said OCT Director and Washington Full Circle Executive Producer Eric E. Richardson. “We’ve also had a lot of fun along the way, and we hope that the NBC4 audience will enjoy this video tour as much as we have enjoyed making Washington Full Circle a reality.”

NBC4 is the #1 television station in Washington, DC. The station is owned and operated by NBC Universal (a division of General Electric), and is a long-standing leader in every aspect of broadcasting and community service.
