The Office of Communications ensures consistency and quality in the delivery of accurate and timely information about the Atlanta City Council and the City government to the public. The City Council aims to meet that demand by being responsive and providing improved access to government through various forms of media.

The communications staff deals with the media, including journalists, writers and photographers from newspapers, magazines, wire services, television stations, radio stations, internet companies and newsletters. Overall, staff responds to approximately 200 inquiries each month from the media and general public.

City Talk is the Council Communications’ bimonthly program dedicated to keeping viewers informed about city government. City Talk airs on Channel 26, and is hosted, written, and produced in-house to give viewers a look at city events, activities, and issues impacting local government
