Who Makes it Happen?

It takes a lot of ideas, creativity, talent and resources to program a 24-hour TV Channel for 365 days a year. Our TV “producers” are spread throughout the six CRC college and university campuses. Our program creators include students, faculty and staff leaders, such as:

Saint Augustine’s University: Public Affairs, WAUG-TV, students in the Film and Journalism and Mass Communications departments, faculty and administrators

William Peace University: the Public Affairs Department, the Performing Arts Department, and students in mass communications

NC State University: Hugh Shelton Leadership Program, Communications Services, the NC Language and Life Program, Wolfpack Athletics, the Emerging Issues Forum, Wolfpack TV, African-American Cultural Center, College of Engineering,

Meredith College: Media Services, leaders of the college’s lecture series, art and photography students of Jane Terry, Marketing and Public Affairs

Shaw University: Office of Public Affairs, Department of Communications and the Divinity School

Wake Technical Community College: Office of Communications and Public Relations

Wake County Government: Wake County public affairs

In addition to our CRC producers, some of our programming comes from national education resources, such as PegMedia and the Annenberg Foundation.
