New Cable Network Will Showcase Black Colleges

This coming fall the new Atlanta-based HBCU television network will premier on cable systems throughout the United States. The new network will feature live football, basketball, track and field, and other athletic events from the four athletic conferences that include historically black colleges and universities. In addition to sports, the HBCU Network will carry news, lifestyle, educational, and music programing. The business plan calls for participating black colleges and universities to get a 20 percent stake in the new enterprise.
