Apparent cancellationEdit

Despite the success of Full Circle programs: some of which drew some of the highest ratings for coverage of the respective sports in SC history, this idea appears to have been quietly dropped by the network sometime in 2007 for unknown reasons. The page that lists current SC programs does not mention Full Circle

The closest thing to what could be called Full Circle in the intervening time (April 2007-December 2008) has been the yearly simulcast of Jim Valvano's speech @ the 1993 SC Awards, which begins an annual week-long appeal for the Jimmy V Foundation. On December 3rd 2008, the speech aired on SC, SC-2, SCNews, SC-U, SC-Classic & SC Radio simultaneously @ 7:00 PM ET. The speech was also translated into Spanish & shown on SC Deportes
