Meet UNC-TV's Governance & Advisory Boards

UNC-TV has a well-defined governance system that assures ample oversight that is both transparent and representative of the diverse views and interests of North Carolinians.

UNC-TV is licensed by the Federal Communications Commission to the University of North Carolina Board of Governors. The North CarolinaGeneral Assembly elects 28 members, and a student representative serves ex officio. Former board chairs and state governors have emeritus status.

UNC-TV is also served by its Board of Trustees, a diverse group acting in a direct advisory capacity and assuring that public involvement and perspectives inform UNC-TV's operations and initiatives. Membership is voluntary.

And the UNC-TV Foundation and its Board work to raise funds to advance, promote and support the public service mission of UNC-TV.

Pie chart of Funding Resources for FY2017: UNC-TV has diverse revenue support, 53% of which is private.

Private Support Is the Major Funder of UNC-TV

As North Carolina’s only statewide television network, UNC-TV’s four channels, broadcasting over-the-air on 12 stations, and its digital content are made possible through a unique partnership of public investment and private support.

In many other countries, the national government fully funds its public media (often through an annual household license fee, or tax), thus removing the need for any form of fundraising, underwriting from private sources, or funding from local governments. Most countries in the world have adopted this model for funding public broadcasting.

In the United States, however, funding for public media comes from Congressional appropriations, private and public grants, corporate and foundation support, and, most of all and most importantly, viewers like you. Thank you.
