Spoleto Festival

Dear Viewers and Listeners:

This month ETV partners with the SC Humanities and USC to bring viewers three specials spotlighting Pulitzer Prize winners from South Carolina. The first program focuses on commentary with Washington Post columnists Kathleen Parker and Jim Hoagland; the second looks at journalism with writers from the Charleston Post and Courier; and the third highlights novelist and South Carolinian Julia Peterkin.

We’re also proud to join the PBS NewsHour for an initiative that teaches students the basics of news reporting. The Student Reporting Labs in S.C. high schools will help ensure that young producers are prepared to take the highest standards of the NewsHour, State House Today, Reel South, Carolina Money and other South Carolina ETV programming into the future.

As a stirring tribute to our armed forces, the National Memorial Day Concert 2016 airs live from the West Lawn of the Capitol. We have included our local programs this month: a trio of Man and Moment episodes on ETV and all eight South Carolinians in World War II episodes on ETV World.

South Carolina Public Radio is in Charleston to welcome the Spoleto Festival USA back to the state. Reporters will bring listeners highlights of all the arts happenings throughout the day, from May 27-June 12; and the ever-popular Chamber Music Concerts will return to the airwaves next month.

President & CEO
