President's Corner Monthly Newsletter, October 2016

Dear Viewers and Listeners:
This month marks the one-year anniversary of the floods that devastated much of our state. SCETV has produced a special documentary, entitled Raging Water, that takes a look back at this catastrophic event and its devastating effects—some of which are ongoing today. Photographs, footage and interviews with many of those affected illustrate the destruction, rebuilding, and resiliency of the people of our state. Produced by Mark Adams, the program will be offered nationwide in coming months.
We are excited to bring viewers a Great Performances special, Hamilton’s America, an unprecedented look at the creation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s pop-culture Broadway phenomenon, Hamilton. Three years in the making, the special reveals Miranda’s process of telling Alexander Hamilton’s epic story on the musical stage.
A new season of SCETV’s national series For Your Home premieres this month. Host Vicki Payne guides viewers through home and garden projects, with expert tips on decorating, improving and enjoying your home.
Also in October, SC Public Radio is holding its “No Pledge Drive” Pledge Drive. First held this past February, this type of pledge drive was such a success that we are holding it again—asking listeners to support radio programming without interrupting our regular schedule. As always, we are ever grateful for your consistent and loyal support.
President & CEO
