UW|360 tops the ratings on KOMO

The buzz for UW|360 is growing! UW|360 on KOMO was the most watched program in its time slot on March 8! More than 50,000 viewers from around the Puget Sound region tuned in to learn more about the fascinating people and innovative programs at the University of Washington. More people are discovering the show and the wide range of community connections, groundbreaking discoveries and campus life that makes the UW such a colorful and dynamic part of our region.

EMMY Statuette  

UW|360 was also nominated for two EMMY® awards by the Northwest Regional Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The two nominations are the March 2013 edition of UW 360 and a story about a local man who served as a CIA agent during the Cold War.

This month on UW|360 host Carolyn Douglas brings viewers inside Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmondson Pavilion. This episode features a story about a UW nursing student who has a passion for community health and volunteering overseas and describes what the UW is doing to help seniors from being taken advantage of by criminals posing as their grandchildren. The episode also explores efforts by doctors at UW Medicine to help patients regain limb function after spinal cord injries and provides a behind-the-scenes look at efforts by two UW researchers and Seattle City Light to improve the efficiency of something we all use--lightbulbs. Finally, we will meet the UW Husky Men's basketball team's secret weapon for success. You'll be surprised to learn he never sets foot on the court.
