The TCtv Awards, also known as the "Stanley's," were named in honor of the late Stanley E. Remelmeyer, Torrance's former City Attorney who was instrumental in the development of cable television in the City.  Through the awards ceremony, the City encourages quality programming by the community and introduces the public to the purpose and benefits of public access television.  The City of Torrance has provided public access to its residence since 1987.

This year's ceremony was sponsored by Exxon Mobil, City of Torrance, and Torrance Public Access Foundation; with California State University Dominguez Hills' award winning Jazz Ensemble providing entertainment.
