You may not be aware of it, but KCPT is 50 years old. The official birthday year began last spring. You could be forgiven for not knowing. Perhaps because of the poor economy and so many other things going on, we haven’t been making a big splash of it. Some of our pledge drives featured a 50th anniversary t-shirt. Certainly we didn’t do any birthday cakes or parties. You may have seen a couple of spots on the air that mentioned our history, but that’s been about it.
At the end of last year here on The Local Show, in the spirit of turning 50, we invited 50 viewers to tell us what KCPT means to them. After all, this station is about you. Starting today and over the next couple of weeks, you’ll see what people had to say and we invite you to join them.
What does KCPT mean to you? Can you tell us in five words or less on a sign or in some other creative way? Send a link to your video or email us a photo to The Local Show website. We’ll show you more of these on next week’s program.
Here is a look back to 1961…
