around $300,000. "Wc need to have
some financial reserves, because we
dont want to make decisions based just
on TV (profits)," Swofford said.
Television coverage of UNC athletic
events has been quite profitable for the
department and now accounts for 21
percent of its total revenue, or a little
less than $2 million a year.
TV revenues have just exploded,"
Swofford said. "Sometimes I think
maybe we're too influenced by it, but
it gives many more people opportunity
to see the teams."
Although there are 13 varsity sports
for both men and women, expenditures
for men's sports outnumber the amount
spent on women's sports by roughly
eight to one. Football, which was
allotted $1,539,000 this year, not
including money for 95 scholarships,
receives more money than all the
women's sports combined. Men's bas
ketball will receive $86 1 ,000.
But football ticket sales also generate
about $2.3 million for the department.
"Football is a really expensive sport to
run," said athletic department manager
Beth Miller. "We have to do more for
those sports (football and basketball)
since they're revenue producing."
Discounting the football and basket
ball figures, the total budget for men's
and women's sports is almost equal, at
slightly over $500,000 each.
WUNC wants more student volunteers
By NANCY ATKINSON
After a full day of classes, the only thing many students
can do is get a soda and a bag of popcorn and veg-out
to a favorite rerun, soap opera or cartoon. Busy being
absorbed into the fantasy world of television, the lecture
weary student little realizes a real world of exciting
experiences exists at the other end of the broadcast frequency.
WUNC, channel 4, the same station that brings shows
like "Masterpiece Theatre," the "MacNeill-Lehrer Report"
and "Monty Python's Flying Circus" to North Carolina,
wants to expand its volunteer network. Volunteer services
Director Camille Patterson said the UNC Center of Public
Television depends highly on viewer support through money
or volunteer work. She said, "A lot of people consider TV
glamorous, and it is when you're in front of the camera,
but there's an awful lot of work going into making that
Based right on the UNC campus in an annex to the general
administration building at 910 Raleigh Road, WUNC is a
campus organization that is interested in more than tapping
the student population as a large volunteer source.
"Volunteering is a two-way street. Volunteers give time and
energy, but we want them to come away with skills they
can put on a resume," Patterson said.
She says the state of North Carolina accepts volunteer
experience as work experience on their applications, and the
fact that a student has done something aside from classwork
is very valuable when job hunting.
The station wants to open doors for skill development
to everyone on campus. "A lot of times the only students
that know about public television are RTVMP majors,"
Patterson said. "But as far as contacting like the art
department that could help our graphics department, the
only way to get in touch with them is by going into the
Students can develop writing and research skills by assisting
departments like programming and public affairs. The
programs themselves must be processed regularly. A satellite
feed brings in programs from all over the country to the
station that must be time-coded. Besides time-coding,
volunteers can also help develop local programs. Patterson
said, "The local programs need research that is readable."
The public affairs department needs writers and researchers
to answer mail. "Viewers are very responsive to our
programming, and they write in asking questions like, What
is the music to Masterpiece Theater?" Patterson said.
Answering questions, dealing with complaints tactfully and
sending transcripts are time-consuming tasks that volunteers
can help with as weil as learn from doing.
, Volunteering is especially needed by WUNC in March
when the station does its major fundraising event, "Festival."
"Festival" is vital to the running of the station because,
Patterson said, "We dont run a spot for Pepsi Cola at $5,000
Individual students can learn public relations skills by
selling advertisements to local merchants around the time
of this event. Patterson said different fraternities, sororities
or other campus groups have gotten TV exposure by manning
the pledge phones during "Festival."
"A lot of people have gone on to bigger and better things,"
Patterson said, and she is ready to give others a start at
WUNC. "TV is a very high energy kind of place. It's not
cold and sterile, and there's always something going on."
Students can volunteer on a regular or temporary basis
by calling Camille Patterson at 962-8191, extension 545 or
547. Students interested in more specific jobs and skill
developing will be kept on file in a "SkillsBand," and they
will be called in for related temporary work when needed.
