Dear Viewers and Listeners:
This month, ETV is proud to bring you programming that shines a national spotlight on our state, as we celebrate the arts and music.
From our new radio production studios, Shari Hutchinson and her team have been on the move, overseeing two national productions. First we were proud to see the launch of Piano Jazz Rising Stars with host Jon Weber in January. This series, recorded primarily in New York, and post-produced in South Carolina, is already airing on 100 public radio stations nationwide.
Next up: Song Travels with Michael Feinstein features Feinstein with an eclectic range of guests, from Liza Minnelli and Bette Midler to Joshua Bell and Neil Sedaka, for unique and incredible journeys through the Great American Songbook.
Chamber Music from the Spoleto Festival USA is another ETV Radio offering, bringing to national audiences the amazing virtuosity and old-world charm of these popular concerts, recorded last year at the historic Dock Street Theatre in Charleston.
On the statewide front is an exciting new television documentary for our Carolina Stories series: Space Heroes. This program highlights three heroic astronauts with South Carolina ties—Charles Duke Jr., Charles F. Bolden Jr., and Ronald McNair, who died in the launch of the shuttle Challenger in 1986.
These are just a few of the many ways SCETV and ETV Radio showcase a range of talented people and accomplishments to South Carolina and the world.
We are grateful to members of the ETV Endowment who help make all this possible.
President & CEO
