WXYC has a tumblr!

"WXYC has been inhabiting the annex of the Carolina Union for quite some time now, and until this summer we had quite the collection of memorabilia hanging from our walls. Unfortunately the time came for them to be taken down after a few decades in order to get our facilities up to code. However, we want to make sure that these posters and knick-knacks are not lost or forgotten. Many of these posters are pieces of a local history in Chapel Hill and its surrounding areas; and all are in some way a part of the history at WXYC."

Check it out:

We'll be posting images, etc. to the site weekly.
