In 2003, WAFB celebrated 50 years with a wonderful look back ... we thought you'd enjoy seeing it again.

In 1953 ... a loaf of bread cost 14 cents ... Interstate 10 through Baton Rouge was only on paper ... and the first television station in the Capital City went on the air. Relive the history of television with WAFB TV.

You'll enjoy seeing familiar faces, hearing stories of how things used to be done to get news, weather, and entertainment on the air each and every evening. See how "advanced" things were way back then ... how Mike Graham used to do the news. Remember how far reaching five decades of WAFB news coverage, community service, and entertainment have been.

Come along with us for a nostalgic walk down memory lane as we celebrate our 60 years with a look back at our anniversary special from 2003 ... WAFB: The First 50 Years.
