A message that flashed "Thanks Ed" followed by "Foundation" had been running since Winter Break due to organizational delays within the Carolina Athletic Association.
The message was meant to recognize the Educational Foundation, which funded the news ticker.
On Tuesday night, the ticker began running times for upcoming basketball games and the results of recent basketball games and swim meets.
But the change came too late to inform students of one basketball distribution and several sports events that have been held since the beginning of the semester.
CAA President Tee Pruitt said the project was under the jurisdiction of Special Projects Co-coordinators Michael Songer and Adam Walters while it was getting off the ground last semester.
But now that the ticker is in place and secured, Pruitt said it is the responsibility of the CAA Sports Marketing Committee.
"It is their responsibility to handle all our sports marketing endeavors," he said.
"This is an exceptional opportunity for them to carry out these types of informative projects."
Trisha McWilliams, vice chairwoman of the marketing committee, said it is completely understandable that the ticker had not been changed recently.
