Happy 20th Birthday to NY1!

We were a couple months away from electing Bill Clinton to his first term as president. Time Warner Cable debuted a 24-hour channel, NY1. To blow out the 20 candles on the cake, NY1 got the “Empire State Building treatment.” Our sister site TVSpy reports the iconic structure was lit in the station’s blue and yellow colors yesterday.

NY1 mainstays Pat Kiernan and Roma Torre had a hand in the lighting ceremony. TVSpy has more on the story.
