The Hyattsville Reporter
The City's official newsletter is printed in English and Spanish and mailed to residences within City limits twice per month - once as a standalone publication printed on green paper (the "green sheet") and once as the center pages of the Hyattsville Life and Times newspaper. The Hyattsville Life and Times is a nonprofit newspaper published independently, and the City purchases these pages as advertising space.

The City broadcasts City Council meetings, City promotional videos, and other information on our cable station. For Verizon subscribers, the station airs on channel 12, and for Comcast subscribers on channel 71. The station can also be streamed live, and Council meetings can be viewed on demand.
