Greene-Waters HD News Center
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Journalism students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill can practice their skills using the latest in high-definition equipment thanks to a donation from Capitol Broadcasting Company, parent company of WRAL-TV and WRAL.com.

The school dedicated the Greene-Waters HD News Center on Friday. It is named for longtime CBC executives John Greene and the late Ben Waters.

Greene is a 1966 graduate of UNC who worked at WBTV in Charlotte before joining CBC. He retired in 1990, taught in the UNC School of Journalism and returned to WRAL-TV to help the station launch HDTV in the mid-90s.

Waters retired from CBC in 2003 after 26 years. He continued to work with the company off and on until 2007.

The center offers students a news room, control room and studio featuring state-of-the-art technology.
