ETV News Update

Welcome to our updated site, a part of our work to refresh ETV and the ETV brand.  Our logos have been updated to a more modern look.  You’ll note the ETV Endowment has also had a bit of a polish as well.

Along the way, we’ve had a chance to talk with many in our audience about our services.  One change is that, based on audience recommendations, ETV Radio is now called South Carolina Public Radio.  Another is that we’re offering our first ETV app, available in the iTunes store (South Carolina ETV) or in the Android store (SCETV).
