I’ve been fascinated by this extremely old sign in our storage area. I’ve no idea where it was originally stationed but I can certainly lay odds the time frame was very early in the station’s history.


WUNC, Channel 4 in Chapel Hill, was the first station in our statewide network. It signed on in 1955. The next was WUNB (later WUND) in the mid-60s. We grew by several stations shortly thereafter so this sign was most likely circa that time.

UNC-TV currently has eleven network stations across North Carolina. Read about UNC-TV’s history HERE.
