CBC played host to Russian Serghei Terentii during the last week of May and first day of June. Terentii is visiting Raleigh through the Community Connections program and became a temporary intern at WRAL-TV, Microspace and DTV Plus to learn the ropes of our cutting edge technology.

The US Dept of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (BECA) sponsors the program which made Terentii’s visit possible, while the International Visitors Council coordinated the brief internship through Community Connections.

Terentii began his visit at WRAL-TV on Tuesday, May 29th. After spending two days under the guidance of Special Projects Manager John Harris, Terentii spent a day at Microspace. Account Manager Curt Tilly gave him a tour of the satellite control room and Account Manager Paula McGraw gave him an overview of the CBC subsidiary. The Russian intern completed his stay at CBC with a day at DTV Plus, learning from General Manager Sam Matheny. CBC’s VP of HD John Greene also played a critical role in Terentii’s visit to the CBC subsidiaries.
