“Channel 45 is now moving back into the educational model for which it was designed,” said Eagle Valley Principal Richard Lundgren. “Area schools and the general public will once again be able to avail themselves of educational programming,” he explained. Those who have cable television service will have to manually select Channel 45 to receive the broadcasts. At the present time, none of the cable companies are carrying Channel 45 as part of their programming.
