Happy 50th Anniversary WLIW21!

WLIW21 is 50! The station dedicated to serving Long Island is celebrating its 50th anniversary on the air today, Monday, January 14.

From Long Island Educational Television Council first signing on the air in 1969, to WLIW’s commitment to local and British programming, to its merger with WNET in 2003, to its launch of Passport in 2017 and the forthcoming broadcast launch of ALL ARTS later this month, there is a lot to celebrate.

Do you have a favorite memory of your time working for WLIW21 or a story about how the station or its programming has impacted your life? Help kick off the anniversary festivities by sharing your story (it may be included in WLIW’s upcoming 50th anniversary broadcast special!):
