Orson Scott Card Becomes UNC-TV Trustee

Orson Scott Card has been named to the UNC-TV board of trustees reports the Greensboro (North Carolina) News & Record. The board of trustees is an advisory group to the UNC Board of Governors which holds UNC-TV’s broadcast licenses and is responsible for the organization.

The controversial SF writer has lived in Greensboro since 1983. He responded to the News & Record’s request for comment: “Those who want my actual views will consult the originals and not the deliberately distorted reports.”

UNC-TV board Chairman Robb Teer said in a press release, “We are pleased to welcome Mr. Card to the UNC-TV board of trustees. We are grateful for his willingness to serve and look forward to working with him to continue providing the people of our state with enriching, life-changing television in these challenging times.”

Last year UNC-TV produced 340 hours of original programming, such as North Carolina Now, Legislative Week in Review, and North Carolina Weekend.
