About

Living Television was a special initiative of the Archive of American Television to collaborate with broadcast organizations, colleges and universities across the country to videotape in-depth interviews of local television pioneers. These are the people who built television stations from the ground-up and who appeared on television at the local level – many achieving national prominence. The resulting interview collections are housed at participating institutions in addition to being part of the Television Academy Foundation's The Interviews: An Oral History of Television.

Living Television was designed to reach out to localities across America, capturing the rich history of their television stations and personalities that would otherwise be lost. Participating institutions included:
California State University, Fullerton
Columbia College, Chicago
Temple University, Philadelphia
UCLA Extension
