The funeral will air at 3 p.m.
Shea died on Tuesday at the age of 104.
UNC-TV will also broadcast two original documentary specials celebrating the life and work of Shea on Saturday, April 20. "The Wonder of it All," a documentary about Shea's life, will air 6:00 p.m., to be followed immediately at 6:50 p.m. by "George Beverly Shea and Friends," featuring musical performances by Shea and other gospel musicians and singers.
Regularly scheduled UNC-TV programs will be pre-empted by these special presentations.
