Some of this these schools are in districts that have a bit of money. These are different from the University programs which are far more professional I will post some of those when I get a chance. But the tv stations are an extension of the broadcast programs some high shools have. It used to be just in school radio stations. But as money became available tv stations are becoming more and more popular. As far as donations, im not sure about the posted sets, but its not unusual for local tv stations to donate their old set to a high school or university.
I'm here to give you something to talk about! You're Welcome.
