SCETV/USCB television series, By The River, honored


From staff reports 

Last month, South Carolina ETV (SCETV) announced that its weekly, 30-minute, literature-focused series, By The River, has received two accolades from The Communicator Awards – the Communicator Award of Excellence in the Television Cultural category and the Communicator Award of Distinction in the Television Interview category. 

Now filming its fourth season, By The River is filmed on a Bronze Telly Award-winning set at ETV Lowcountry in Beaufort. Achieved in partnership with the University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB), the entire crew for the show consists of USCB Communication Studies students. The show is hosted by Holly Jackson, director of Operations and Content at ETV Lowcountry and is produced by Dr. Caroline E. Sawyer, assistant professor of Communication Studies at USCB. 

“By The River is our love letter to Southern stories and the authors and poets who write them, while also providing the ultimate experiential learning opportunity for USCB communication studies students,” Sawyer said in a release. “In this program, SCETV gives us the opportunity to take the educational experience to a new level. It’s wonderful that The Communicator Awards recognize such excellence in the outcome of our partnership.” 

“By The River perfectly depicts the value that public media can bring to a community. As a collaboration with USCB, this project offers students an experience they can’t get anywhere else in South Carolina, and I’m proud to see all of their great work recognized in this way,” SCETV President and CEO Anthony Padgett said in a news release.
