Dear Viewers and Listeners:
Happy holidays to you from ETV and ETV Radio! We offer you a wonderfully diverse viewing schedule this month, filled with unique Festival programming as well as informative and moving SCETV Presents specials.
Our Festival fundraising event runs through December 14, and includes performances from soprano Renée Fleming, the angelic young singer Jackie Evancho, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth, and the majestic Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Movie fans will enjoy Classic Hollywood Musicals, a tour of the Golden Age of musicals. Nutritionist, physician and chef Dr. Steven Masley gives advice on heart health, and Joel Harper shows us exercises that will tone and stretch the entire body.
Nationwide, SCETV Presents includes another installment of the popular series Journey to Planet Earth: Extreme Realities. Hosted by actor Matt Damon, this program investigates the links between severe weather, climate change and threats to our national security. Bringing the Fallen Home is an emotional look at our nation’s fallen heroes and the families they left behind. And our award-winning series, A Chef’s Life, presents A Chef’s Life Holiday Special, as Chef Vivian Howard serves up the best of her Southern cooking heritage and the Chanukah traditions her husband Ben recalled from his childhood days.
ETV Radio offers a wide variety of seasonal programming, including An Afro Blue Christmas, Christmas with Marian McPartland, Hanukkah Lights 2014, and the traditional live broadcast of A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.
We appreciate your gifts of support throughout 2014, and we wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season.
Linda O’Bryon President and CEO
