Emory & Henry College’s television station, EHC-TV, will begin airing on a new channel, Comcast channel 3, beginning Wednesday, Oct. 15.
The new channel is expected to give EHC-TV, a production of the College’s Mass Communications Department, much greater visibility on the lower tier Channel 3, and will cover both Smyth County and Washington County, Virginia.
The station’s programming, which will air every Wednesday and Thursday evening, beginning at 7:00 p.m., includes news, interviews, sports updates and sports broadcasts. EHC-TV also televises replays of of all home E&H football games and some of the College’s basketball games. Coverage will include a replay of Emory & Henry’s stunning Oct. 4 victory over Randolph-Macon.
EHC-TV includes a 30 minute news program hosted by E&H students Emily Carrier and Kevin Anzenberger. Carrier, a native of Bristol, Va., is a graduate of John Battle High School. Carrier worked as an on-air reporter at WKPT-TV last summer. Anzenberger, a native of Concord, N.C., is a member of the E&H basketball team.
EHC-TV had been televised on Comcast channels 70 and 95. The move to channel 3 was facilitated by the Marion Town Council, which controls the channel and passed a resolution last fall to include EHC-TV programming there.
This move provides us with much greater visibility. This new channel also strengthens the relationship between Emory & Henry and the people of Marion and Smyth County. We appreciate the support from the Town of Marion and are grateful to Comcast Cable for facilitating this partnership that will benefit us all.Dr. Teresa Keller
