Series Description
"Public service is the watchword of all WNYC programming, with the station (and its FM outlet) dedicated fully to the aim of serving the vast community that is New York City. To do this effectively in meeting the many specialized needs of the World's Greatest City is no small feat. WNYC is proud of its unparalleled position of providing more service to special groups, (including youth, senior citizens, women, consumers, various nationality groups, veterans, etc.) than any other station, but even more important is the City Station's continuous tradition of serving the public at large in its manifold and diverse needs, particularly in times of emergency when WNYC not only provides all-out service on its own broadcasting facilities, but serves as the key coordinator for other radio-TV outlets of the City. This was best exemplified during the December subway strike when WNYC maintained a forefront position in aiding the public during the worst subway tie-up in the history of New York City."--1957 Peabody Awards entry form.
