Inside UNC Charlotte’ to debut on WTVI-TV
A new television magazine program about the University debuts at 5:30 p.m., Sunday, Feb 5, on WTVI-TV.
“Inside UNC Charlotte” will offer a lively look at the University's impact on greater Charlotte, said Stephen Ward, executive director of University communications.
Produced by the Office of University Communications, the TV program showcases the breadth of 49er community engagement, including segments on the ways the University addresses critical national issues in the Charlotte metro region; UNC Charlotte’s impact on the cultural scene; faculty research; and the many ways 49er students, faculty, staff and alumni give back to the community, Ward stated.
Segments in this first program include how UNC Charlotte and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools are working together to meet the challenges of urban K-12 education; a feature on the partnerships that are enhancing the Governor’s Village schools; a profile of the University's renowned Cyber Security Program; and a preview of this spring's top cultural event, “Violins of Hope.”
“Plan to make this first show your Super Bowl pre-game show and share in the 49er pride,” said Ward.
WTVI-TV will air rebroadcasts of the program at 10 p.m., Friday, Feb. 10, and 3 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 11. UNC Charlotte’s Channel 22 will air the show at 1 and 7 p.m. Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays throughout February after its WTVI debut.
