TV crews arrive early for Duke-UNC
Posted February 11, 2014
The threat of inclement weather surrounding the No. 8 Duke at North Carolina game Wednesday prompted television crews and officials to arrive early in Chapel Hill.
Raycom executive producer Rob Reichly said Tuesday their crew and production truck left earlier than usual to make sure they were in place for the Battle of the Blues.
The Atlantic Coast Conference rule states as long as two officials and two teams can make it to the arena, the game will be played. UNC officials said Tuesday it is too early to know what their contingency plan will be for fans planning to attend the game.
The first match-up between the Blue Devils and Tar Heels is scheduled to air on WRAL-TV at 9 p.m.
The CBS special on The Beatles will replay on WRAL-TV overnight, at 2 a.m. Thursday. Viewers are advised to record from 2 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. to get the entire show.
The Beatles special pre-empts regular episodes of “Criminal Minds” and “CSI.” Those programs will pick up where they left off next week.
