THE START OF EDUCATIONAL TV AND HOW WARM WAS INVOLVED
We all take WVIA TV and FM for granted. Many in our community think it's always been there. But every great broadcast entity begins with a seed of an idea. That idea spawned by Marywood College at the time grew into public broadcasting.
In 1955 Marywood offered a 13 week course via television. It was a History of Drama class. This ad illustrates just how "The world via TV" started.
Years later WVIA, in 1966 brought Education and Entertainment via TV.
Later on the radio too.
Integral in its start was of course WARM TV. Channel 16. Later WVIA started at Marywood with the help of equipment from WNEP. Thanks to our good friend Joe Klapatch for finding this ad.
