Communications Department

The Communications Department keeps the community and City employees updated on the City’s activities, services, and events. The department manages the City’s website and social channels, produces press releases and original content, operates the Durham Television Network (DTN), and serves as the spokesperson for the news media. Learn more about our work.

As of July 2021, the Office of Public Affairs is now the Communications Department. We still offer the same services but with a new name.
