The network traces its history to 1957, when the General Assembly authorized a study in the use of television in the state's public schools. A studio opened in the state capital, Columbia, a year later. The Commission began operations in 1960, and by 1962 extended television service to all 46 of South Carolina's counties. Also in 1963, the Commission opened the first educational television station in South Carolina, WNTV in Greenville. A year later, WITV in Charleston signed on. Two years later, the network's flagship, WRLK in Columbia, signed on. The network is now comprised of 16 stations. After years of receiving NET and PBS programs on tape-delay, it entered PBS' satellite network in 1978. In 2000, SCETV broadcast the first digital television program in the state. Since 2003, the network has been known on-air as simply "ETV South Carolina." Year 1957 (MCMLVII) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link displays the 1957 Gregorian calendar). ...
