TPC Closing for Flooring Replacement | Sept. 24th – Oct. 2nd
After sustaining flood damage from such a wet summer, TPC will be replacing the carpet throughout the facilities. This does require us to close the studio beginning Tuesday Sept. 24th and reopening Wednesday Oct. 2nd. As we shuffle our inventory around, our field equipment will be unavailable for check out during this period.

There’s plenty of work to be done so we are making a call for volunteers to help us with the preparation. Give us a call at (919) 960-0088 for more information.

Programming during Closing Announcement
How will the closing affect programming?

We will continue broadcasting as normal while the above work is being done, however during the week of Monday, September 30 through Sunday, October 6, we will rebroadcast programming from the previous week.  This will apply to the schedules of both The Peoples Channel and Durham Community Media.  Any programs that have already been submitted will automatically be moved to the following week of the requested broadcast date.

If you wish to keep your program dates the same and simply defer the single submission, please contact our Program Director, Monica Hughes,  at (919) 960-0088, to make arrangements.

TPC Studio Sweep! | Friday Sept. 20th 3pm – 7pm
Another element of the closing/carpet replacement is a cleaning of house that we would like to do. We have a plethora of older video production equipment, VCRs, cables, and other miscellaneous items. With a $5 donation at the door, you can go into the studio and grab what you can. Some items like cameras will be priced. Come on out and help us clear this gear!
