On April 6-7, BBG Governor Matt Armstrong visited the Edward R. Murrow Transmitting Station outside Greenville, North Carolina. Â Armstrong toured the property and met with staff to learn more about the operations of the facility.
â€śMeeting with this hard-working and dedicated staff was an honor,â€ť observed Matt Armstrong.Â â€śIt was a valuable opportunity to have a up-close look at the complexities and challenges of operating this historic transmitting site.â€ť
The visit was an extension of Armstrongâ€™s work as the chair of the BBGâ€™s Special Committee on the Future of Shortwave Broadcasting. Â To learn more about the work of the committee, visit us here.
