World of Opera Ends Production

By G. Rawls

World of Opera

With regret, we announce that World of Opera, produced and distributed by WDAV Classical Public Radio and South Carolina Public Radio, has ended production; the final episode of the series was broadcast on December 10. The provider of the recorded live operatic performances that are the mainstay of the series, the European Broadcasting Union, was no longer able to continue to deliver these performances. SC Public Radio was proud to be a part of this tradition begun by NPR decades ago.

Many South Carolinians may not have heard of the town of Nichols prior to Gov. Nikki Haley's October 10th press conference. The small town is in Marion County and has a population of about 400.  Those watching that update, learned that more than half of the town's residents were rescued from the third floor of the town hall. Nichols was flooded from rising waters from the neighboring Lumber River. South Carolina Public Radio's Thelisha Eaddy talks with a resident about how he and his family were taken to higher ground.
