Dear Viewers and Listeners:
In this short winter month, ETV and ETV Radio have a programming schedule full of highlights.
ETV Radio is holding its “I Love ETV Radio” pledge campaign, February 11–19. Listeners may show their Valentine’s Day love by supporting ETV Radio programming, either with a call during fundraising hours, online at etvradio.org, or by texting “etvradio” to 41444.
We’re excited that Antiques Roadshow is coming to Charleston in August. The deadline for tickets is April 6. For more information, visit pbs.org/antiques/tickets.
In observance of Black History Month, ETV offers a wide variety of both national and local specials that focus on the history and achievements of African Americans. Our local offerings include several Southern Lens productions: February One: The Story of the Greensboro Four; Long Walk to Freedom; and Before Rosa: The Unsung Contribution of Sara Mae Flemming. American Masters gives viewers an inside look at the life and work of the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson; and An Evening with Gwen Ifill is a one-on-one interview with one of the most prolific journalists of our time.
We are also proud to again present the Black History Teleconference in partnership with Benedict College. Offered nationally, this teleconference gives students the opportunity to talk with and ask questions of prominent African Americans.
Debuting this month, The Italian Americans focuses on the Italian experience in America, from the late 19th century to the present day. Narrated by actor Stanley Tucci, the programs reveal the unique qualities of one immigrant group’s experience, evolving from “outsiders” to prominent leaders in business, politics and the arts.
Our new education series, Carolina Classrooms, continues this month with a look at New Education Leadership, which highlights changes following this past November’s election.
As always, we thank you for your support of these and all the other great TV and radio programs that we offer all year long!
President and CEO
