UWTVs flagship television series, UW|360, to air on KOMO 4

News and Information

UWTV and KOMO 4 today announced a new broadcast partnership to share stories about the people, places and discoveries from the University of Washington through the UWTV television series, “UW|360.” Beginning on Saturday, March 24, at 4:30 p.m., KOMO 4 will air “UW|360” right before their evening news broadcast.

The half-hour show is in its second season on UWTV (Comcast Channel 27) and can now be seen every week on KOMO 4. Each episode will cover a wide range of topics including Husky athletics, the performing arts, and headline-grabbing scientific innovations from one of the top research Universities in the nation and the world.

The magazine-style show highlights some of the best scholarship, scientific discovery, medical breakthroughs and campus events. The new partnership with KOMO 4 allows those stories from the UW to reach additional Puget Sound viewers and to help viewers connect with the UW in their community – whether through a UW Medicine neighborhood clinic or a new business based on a UW innovation. These stories and many more will be featured each week on the show, with an emphasis on the community partners and discoveries that make an impact far beyond the UW’s three Puget Sound campuses.

“Viewers who havent been able to watch UW|360 on our station will now get a chance to see some of the amazing work being done at the UW, and better understand the effect that work has on their families and neighborhoods,” said John Haslam, UWTV general manager.

The series continues to air on UWTV channel 27 on Sundays at 9 p.m. Past episodes can be viewed online anytime at uwtv.org/uw360.
