Dear Viewers and Listeners:
For the New Year, ETV presents a variety of new offerings and opportunities, from riveting drama to essential information to exceptional entertainment. The long-awaited third season of Masterpiece’s Downton Abbey premieres this month, with the addition of actress Shirley McClain to the cast, as social change and intrigue grip the Grantham estate. Our younger viewers are treated to Wild Kratts Lost at Sea, an hour-long special that dives beneath the ocean for an aquatic adventure.
High school students and their parents will not want to miss ETV’s annual special, Finding Money for College, a live, two-hour program that presents information on different types of higher education aid, scholarships and grants, and state assistance. During the program, viewers may call in with questions and comments.
In addition to a new national season of Song Travels, ETV Radio news stations have added two informative series to their line-up: The Splendid Table, which explores the entire spectrum of food; and The Dinner Party, a humorous series of celebrity interviews and other stories.
The State Legislature returns to Columbia this month, and ETV cameras are there to bring viewers complete gavel-to-gavel coverage of the Senate and House sessions. State House Today, airing on ETV World, includes This Week in the State House, hosted by Lt. Governor Glenn McConnell. Other public affairs coverage this month includes The State of the State address, The State of the Union address, and the Presidential Inauguration.
This year promises to be one of the best yet, and ETV is proud to bring you these and other programming ventures throughout the year.
