I believe they did one at either age 65 or 60, anchored by Kaity Tong and I forget the male anchor who also hosted. I assume this one will cover much of the same material.

If you're interested in the early days of lwo-budget local TV (since WPIX was never a network affiliate till the 1990s) you'll enjoy this special. A look back at the kiddie shows, including Officer Joe Bolton, Chuck McCann and Captain Jack McCarthy. There's the Yule Log and Yankee broadcasts with Phil Rizzuto.
