UPPER CUMBERLAND – Upper Cumberland communities are coming together to celebrate graduating seniors this weekend, and WCTE PBS is making it possible for those ceremonies to be broadcasted.
“It’s important that WCTE contributes to the graduating seniors and their families and making it available over the television is just one way we can support our community.” says Brent Clark, director of production for WCTE PBS. “Not all family and
friends will have the opportunity to be at the commencement ceremonies, but with
WCTE’s broadcast they can watch from their homes and still be a part of the big day.”
WCTE will begin broadcasting the ceremonies on Friday, June 12 at 6 p.m. with Upperman High School, followed at 7 p.m. by Warren County High School. On Saturday June 13 at 10 a.m. Cookeville High School graduates with Monterey High School airing at 4 p.m. On Sunday, June 14, Livingston Academy airs at 2 p.m. and Monday, June 15 White County High School airs at 7 p.m.
The broadcast of all ceremonies will air on WCTE PBS’s World Channel. All ceremonies with the exception of Warren County High School and White County High School will be streamed on WCTE’s Facebook page. The World channel can be received via an antenna on channel 22.2 or check local listings. Currently DirecTV and Dish do not air the World Channel.
