Philadelphia’s KYW Celebrates 80th Anniversary

KYW will celebrate 80 years on the air tomorrow. The Philadelphia CBS O&O signed on under its original call letters, W3XE, on June 28, 1932.

The station will do an anniversary salute tomorrow on “Talk Philly,” the lifestyle program that airs at noon. Ukee Washington, who is on medical leave after a hip replacement, will join co-host Pat Ciarrocchi from his physical therapy via remote.

“Although television stations are routinely focused on the here and now, it’s important to take a look back on milestones such as these and remember who we are,” KYW president-GM Jon Hitchcock said in a statement. “From the very first day, CBS 3 has been an innovator and community leader, something that is important to remember in the 21st Century.”
