WRAL is proud to bring you every game of the ACC basketball tournament. However, as a result, a number of programs are displaced, especially on Thursday and Friday. We know from experience that the large number of ACC fans in our viewing area will be tuning in, but to the non-basketball fans in our audience, we thank you in advance for your patience.
On Feb. 13, WRAL will televise the basketball game between the University of North Carolina and Duke University. Coverage begins at 9 p.m. CBS has scheduled a 90-minute season premiere of "Survivor" starting at 8 p.m. You can see the problem.
Whenever we carry an ACC game in prime time, two hours of CBS programming are displaced. Thursday, it will be two of the more popular dramas, "Person of Interest" and "Elementary."
WRAL-TV and Capitol Broadcasting Company have a long-standing commitment to bring to the forefront issues that confront our communities. We believe that honest, open and balanced discussion can create meaningful change ... change for the better. As part of that, we recognize that the circumstances surrounding the murders in Connecticut expose issues that go far beyond any regulation of guns.
On Wednesday at 8 p.m., WRAL-TV will be carrying the game between Georgia Tech and North Carolina State. "I Get That A Lot," the CBS program that is being preempted at that time will be broadcast on WRAL2, which can be found over-the-air on channel 5-2 or on Time Warner Cable digital channel 106.
I recently celebrated my 34th anniversary with Capitol Broadcasting Company. Friends, colleagues and viewers marked the occasion by asking me what stood out as my most rewarding assignment over those years. The answer came quickly - serving as one of the country's first environmental news reporters on television.
