Show 302 – WSFA TV (Part 1)
/ WSFA TV /
It was Christmas Day, 1954 and the first program was A Christmas Carol and so began the first broadcast day of WSFA TV Montgomery’s second television station. Now, over 55 years later, WSFA TV is still on the air and providing up to the minute new coverage and entertainment to central and south Alabama as an NBC Television network affiliate. Having been owned originally by a company whose main interest was newspapers, WSFA became a television news leader in Alabama and around the country.
That commitment to local news coverage continues today with more than 30 hours a week devoted to local news coverage. We spent an entire day with the staff of WSFA in the studio, on location and in the newsroom to give you an idea of the amount of work and the number of people it takes to produce those 30 hours of television each week.
