On Nov. 2, 1920, KDKA-AM in Pittsburgh ignited the Big Bang of electronic media, which over the past 100 years has produced FM radio, broadcast TV, cable TV, satellite TV, satellite radio, streaming and social media. In recognition of the centennial of broadcasting and proliferation of electronic media, this one-hour special produced by the Library of American Broadcasting Foundation features accomplished TV and radio journalists reflecting on the long history of electronic news and sharing their thoughts on the towering challenges it faces in our country in a time of deep political division and social unrest. The special will be hosted by LABF Co-Chairs Ginny Morris and Heidi Raphael and include comments by NAB President Gordon Smith on the critical continuing importance of TV and radio news to the health of our communities and our democracy.
