Members make the promise of public media possible, and that partnership should be celebrated.
This month we're celebrating and honoring all that our amazing members have helped us achieve with a month-long celebration highlighting the true MVPs and the work they do to ensure UNC-TV remains a vibrant and trusted source of entertainment and information.
We all WANT to remember to support the organizations that are important to us – but sometimes it’s hard.
Every year our sustaining members, members who give to UNC-TV conveniently via an automatic monthly donation, not only help to ensure we keep our promise to deliver the very best public media services around, but they help sustain everything you love about UNC-TV and have a big impact on not just their particular community, but in communities all across the state of North Carolina.
Visionary Durham filmmaker/photographer Ken Branson is a relatively new UNC-TV Sustainer. He was inspired to join after attending a Black Wall Street panel discussion that UNC-TV filmed and made available online. Ken's passionate about stories and sharing them through visual media, saying that we pass history along generation to generation and spread empathy when we share our stories. And while nothing moves him like retelling stories, he recharges with music, he's recently resumed piano lessons, and getting in a game of racquetball. Ken particularly loves how UNC-TV features local artists and community change agents past and present. For Ken, UNC-TV is thoughtful, caring and dope!

Our first broadcast, on January 8, 1955, was of the freshman and varsity basketball games between Wake Forest University and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Since then, our partnership with our viewers has made possible:
