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.
