KCET 50th Anniversary

Times have changed, and the world has changed since we first went on the air on September 28, 1964. But our commitment to providing high quality educational and cultural programming on-air, online, and in the community is unwavering. Through the years, we have played an important role in the lives of many generations of Californians, as a source of information, learning, enlightenment, and inspiration. Join us as we reflect on our past milestones and accomplishments, while we usher in the future, inspiring a better state for all Californians.
