National Memorial Day Concert 2017

 Dear Viewers and Listeners,

In May, we salute our veterans and their families with the popular National Memorial Day Concert 2017, broadcast live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. Hosted again by Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise, the special features an all-star line-up of actors and musicians paying tribute to our men and women in uniform.

South Carolinians in WWII airs Saturday afternoons on ETV World. These inspiring programs feature first-hand accounts from our veterans who courageously fought to keep our country safe.

Nature’s “Spy” series returns with Spy in the Pod, an underwater look at the fascinating world of dolphins, with some strange and interesting results. Victorian Slum House takes a group of modern day families back in time to the British slums of the 1800s, where they recreate life in London’s East End as their forefathers did. For music lovers, American Epic traces the route of early record company scouts as they crossed America, recording early blues, country, gospel, Cajun and folk music.

SCETV’s Making It Grow has been awarded three Bronze Telly Awards. Honors were given in the Nature/Wildlife division, Health & Wellness division, and How-To/DIY division. Congratulations to host Amanda McNulty, producer Sean Flynn, and the entire Making It Grow team.

The Spoleto Festival USA returns to Charleston this month, and SC Public Radio brings listeners highlights of the many performances. Throughout the day, from May 26 to June 11, listeners can hear interviews, reports on events, and previews of performances. This season’s broadcast of the ever-popular Chamber Music Concerts begins in June.

We appreciate your viewership, listenership, and, of course, your valued support!

Linda O’Bryon
President and CEO
