Talk about generous! The Golf Channel is getting all new equipment for their studio, and giving their "old" set to Pearl-Cohn Entertainment Magnet High School! The donation is worth about $3 million and includes 50-inch plasma monitors, broadcast-quality cameras, network servers, switchers, a full remote production kit, a shading system, a satellite transmitter and receiver, and the list goes on.
According to Todd Young, who will teach broadcasting to the students, this equipment is more than just a physical gift. It will give students experience with equipment that real networks use. His goal is to soon be able to run a local public access channel straight out of Pearl-Cohn Entertainment Magnet High School.

And to our friends at the Golf Channel, thank you!
