Greater Chattanooga content is available online and social media first, and then once thirty minute segments are compiled, played on the air.
Disclaimer: I am still a volunteer and donor for WTCI. Are you in the greater Chattanooga viewing area? If so, please join me in showing the station our WTCI-PBS love!
