Evanston announced Monday it had redesigned the schedule for Evanston Community Television, channel 16, which airs government-focused programming.

The city will launch new programming, including “It’s Good to Know!,” an educational show focused on science, and “GovFlix,” which will show films and documentaries from the National Archives remastered by the city. Both programs will run twice a day, the city announced.

The city also announced that the new programs will accompany the existing “City News” segment, which will air five times a day and provide recent Evanston news. Public meetings will continue to be aired on the channel but will not be rebroadcast as often, the city also said.

In addition to the new programming, the city announced it will air special content on channel 16 to celebrate Black History Month this February. Films about prominent black leaders, artists and activists will be aired twice daily throughout the month.
