Our television colleagues here at WKAR are celebrating a milestone today. Six decades ago today, WKAR-TV went on the air.

Current State's Kevin Lavery spoke with Director of Broadcasting Services Gary Reid about the station's history. Reid says it made sense to have a TV station at a university at the time because it was new, cutting edge technology.
