Friday November 15th, WFIE celebrates its 60th anniversary.
I've been here for three years now, and it didn't take long to figure out there was something special about this TV station. Something that draws you to your TV. Something that keeps people like Mike Blake, David James, Ann Komis, and others here all these years. Something bigger than ourselves.
The station has been with the Tri-State in the best of times and made it through some of the its darkest days.
This weekend we plan on celebrating that legacy and we hope you can join us.
Friday night at 7:00, 14 News is running an hour long special, looking back at the early days of WFIE, the difficult stories we've had to cover, and where we go from here.
You'll see plenty of Marcia Yockey, Lloyd Lindsay Young, Uncle Dudley, and the faces that are still here today.
On Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., we're opening our doors to the public. You can take a tour of the station, meet our on-air team, and take a piece of history with you.
This is a special time for WFIE and a special time for broadcast television in the Tri-State. We hope you can join us in the celebration of 60 years of leadership in the Tri-State.
