ABOUT THE SHOW AND CARL WHITE, 2018 HISTORIAN OF THE YEAR*
Carl White’s Life In The Carolinas is an Emmy nominated and award winning syndicated TV show that features the great people and places of the Carolinas. Over the past several years, Executive Producer and Host Carl White has visited much of the Carolinas and has gathered and shared some amazing stories.
The show focuses on the inspiring and positive things that people do. We visit individuals and communities that have pulled together to accomplish extraordinary things. We have seen the power of one person’s vision that has become the passion of many and improved the lives of even more.
The power of a well told story is amazing and has the potential of doing a lot of good. It is this idea that drives the creativity of our programming.
Carl says, “There are few things in life that a person can do that compares to celebrating the lives of others. Looking for the good and advancement in a journey makes life a bit better and gives hope for a brighter tomorrow for all of us. We love looking at our history, our today and our future, as they are all part of our reality.”
