Wash.; WEDM, Munford, Ala.,
find WUNC-TV here. All three
stations operate in the Very
High Frequency broadcasting
There are now 11 educational
TV stations telecasting through
out the nation. The three new
stations can reach , a potential
audience of some 5 million
viewers, bringing the total Pop
ulation living within range of
educational TV stations to near
ly 20 inillion.
Weekly schedules of the three
new stations will soon total
some 80 hours, raising the. total
weekly program output of ed
ucational TV to well over 250
. The nation's first state-fwide
network will enter its initial
stage of active programming
when Munford, main link in
Alabama's ETV network, be

Of the three stations, WUNC
TV begins with the most am
bitious program schedule. After
an initial telecast of the Gover

State Legislature on Jan. 7 and
a formal opening on the even
ing Of Jan. 9, WUNC-TV went
into a full production Schedule
on Jan. 10 with 40 and a half
hours of telecasting per . week.
Production is divided equally
between the three studios
which feed into the transmitter
operated by the Consolidated
University: the University here
State College at Raleigh and
Women's College in Greensboro
The WUNC-TV signal covers a
radius of 100 miles and reaches
a potential audience of 2.25 mil
lion people, some 60 per cent
of the state population. Certain
programs originating from the
Uuniversity's station also will
be carried by commercial sta
tions either live or on kinescope
recordings, thus making part of
the programming available to
the entire state.
In Alabama the whole state
will be served by an ETV net
work in the near future. First
step will be the inauguration
today of regular telecasting
from the transmitter situated
atop Mount Cheaha, near Mun
