New Orleans public television celebrates 65 years of service

by The 100 Companies

WYES, the premier public broadcasting station for southeast Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, celebrates its 65th anniversary this month.

Since signing on the air April 1, 1957, WYES has earned a reputation for quality PBS programming, award-winning local documentaries and cooking series from chefs Paul Prudhomme and Kevin Belton. Documentaries currently in production include a biography of Dr. Norman C. Francis and a history of the National World War II Museum.

The station thanks its generous sponsors, members and volunteers, whose support has made WYES a vital source of education, information, inspiration and entertainment for decades – both on air and online.
