DEVELOPMENTS REGARDING

SCBA HALL OF FAME

SCBA is pleased to announce the opening of two important new venues.  A new Hall of Fame exhibit at Winthrop University and a new digital display at the University of South Carolina will provide high profile environments to highlight SCBA history, which will be accessible to students, faculty, broadcast history researchers, and other visitors to the schools. 

In late summer, the University of South Carolina School of Journalism and Mass Communication will relocate to the renovated Health Science building.   The new facility combines spectacular preservation of one of the historically significant buildings on campus and the very latest in high technology communications.  Featured prominently on the first floor, will be the South Carolina Broadcasters Association Gallery, where SCBA history, including profiles of the Hall of Fame inductees will be featured on a large video screen. 

In addition, SCBA has completed negotiations with Winthrop University in Rock Hill to become the new home to the physical SCBA Hall of Fame, featuring the bronze plaques of current and future inductees.  The plaques will be hung prominently in a newly-remodeled spacious gallery located in the beautiful and historic Johnson Hall, home of the Winthrop Department of Mass Communication.  A formal dedication and unveiling of the new exhibit will take place in September. The day will include a student career forum, tour of the department and cocktail reception.

USC and Winthrop are the two accredited journalism programs in South Carolina and we enthusiastically support the great work they do in preparing tomorrow’s broadcasters.

Tips for Non-Profit Organizations

For local radio and television stations across South Carolina, community service is more than a passing concern.  It is a way of doing business.  Every day in South Carolina, from the biggest cities to the smallest towns and everywhere in between, broadcasters are going to bat for community charities, educating residents about important local issues, and delivering lifesaving information and relief in times of crisis or disaster.  Non-profit groups across the state know they can turn to their local radio and television stations for a helping hand.  The tradition of community service by South Carolina broadcasters is unmatched by any other industry and one that we pledge to uphold in the years ahead.  If you want to gain exposure for your charitable organization, school or other civic group, SCBA provides these guidelines for working with the media.
