“Tonight you join me on a great adventure,” legendary newscaster Edward R. Murrow famously said as he introduced channel13, WNDT (“New Dimensions in Television”) during the station’s inaugural broadcast on September 16, 1962. With that flip of a switch, the greater New York region’s first public television station was born. In 1970, WNDT merged with producer National Educational Television (NET), eventually becoming WNET, parent company to public television stations THIRTEEN and WLIW21 and operator of NJTV.
