CET’s June membership drive will be extra special this year thanks to two shows, America’s Generations with Chuck Underwood and Antiques Roadshow “Jackpot,” as well as the Luther Challenge Grant.

Chuck Underwood, creator, host and executive producer of America’s Generations, will be in the CET studios for the premiere broadcast of his new public television special. Chuck will join CET’s own Tina Hebel on-air during breaks in the program to talk about generational dynamics and the importance of public television. Underwood lives in Centerville, Ohio, and recorded this 90-minute PBS special at Sinclair Community College in Dayton in front of a studio audience.

In America’s Generations, Underwood explains how generational dynamics profoundly influence our personal lives. In this program, you’ll meet three of America’s five living generations: Baby Boomers (1946-1965), Generation X (1965-1981) and Millennials (1982-1994). Underwood is one of the few generational study founders and works with clients such as Hewlett-Packard, Procter & Gamble, Coca Cola and many more. He’s also an author, journalist and researcher.

The following night will kick off with Antiques Roadshow “Jackpot” and we’ll be offering tickets to the July 21st Roadshow taping in Cincinnati as thank you gifts! Antiques Roadshow: Jackpot will be on air at 8pm Monday, June 4, on CET. Tickets will go fast, so tune in early to see how you can get yours!

Also, CET would like to thank the H.B., E.W., and F.R. Luther Charitable Foundation, Fifth Third Bank and Narley L. Hales, Co-Trustees, for their generosity in offering a $50,000 matching challenge grant during this membership drive!
