North Carolina-UNC TV-October 23


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-October 23

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

I didn’t want to do anymore post on Hurricane Matthew but interesting and heartfelt information comes my way that I feel compelled to share. UNC TV did a great special broadcast on Thursday October 20, 2016.

I just had to share the link:

When the network’s original station – WUNC-TV, Channel 4 in Chapel Hill – signed on the air January 8, 1955, as North Carolina’s first “educational station” and the tenth in the nation, no one could foresee the statewide public television network it would become.

That opening night featured a sports telecast of the freshman and varsity basketball games between North Carolina and Wake Forest. To get a camera in, the production crew had to cut a hole in the second story of Woolen gymnasium.

After 60 years UNC-TV’s has converted to a complete digital broadcast. UNC-TV is a 12-station statewide network providing 4 channels of digital television service: flagship channel UNC-TV; UNC-EX, the Explorer Channel; ROOTLE, UNC-TV’s Kids Channel; and the North Carolina Channel, stories with a local accent.
