Thursday, November 3, 2011

Carbondale, Ill. -- Due to scheduling issues, as well as current events on the SIU Carbondale campus, WSIU-TV's 50th anniversary celebrating featuring Jeffrey Brown of PBS NewsHour on Sunday, November 6th at SIUC's Morris Library has been postponed. WSIU regrets any inconvenience this change in plans may cause.

While November 6th marks the official anniversary of WSIU-TV, it is only the start of our plans to celebrate 50 years of service to the University and the region. We are planning to host a variety of anniversary events through November of 2012, including at least one children's event. We look forward to these other opportunities to celebrate 50 years of excellence with our viewers and supporters.

WSIU also is planning to launch a 50th Anniversary webpage at in the next few weeks, which will include historical information and photos. Additional photos will be posted to WSIU's Facebook page at

Details about future 50th anniversary events will be shared on the air and online at as they are finalized.

WSIU-TV would like to thank viewers and corporate sponsors for their financial support of public broadcasting over the past 50 years, which has enabled the station to expand its services to include three digital television channels and three radio stations broadcasting around-the-clock; a website offering on-demand listening, podcasts, and videos; a nationally-recognized education and outreach department; an award-winning local production unit; and the Southern Illinois Radio Information Service (SIRIS), a radio reading service for individuals who are blind or print-impaired.
