A few weeks ago Orlando’s only public television network, PBS, announced that it was folding. The public uproar over the news was heartening: Orlando folks care about public television after all. (We just don’t have any money!)
Now, local university UCF has teamed up with PBS to salvage Orlando public television through UCFTV.
“WUCF TV will carry popular PBS news, features and educational non-commercial programming – such as NOVA, PBS NEWSHOUR, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, FRONTLINE, NATURE and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE. WUCF TV also will feature PBS KIDS shows, including SESAME STREET, as well as locally produced UCFTV and WBCC programming.
WUCF TV will broadcast the national PBS schedule starting July 1″
But wait. No Masterpiece Theater? Say it ain’t so!
