FORT WAYNE, Ind. (NBC33) – 60 years ago this week, our NBC station made history when WKJG-TV became the first local television station to go on the air.

To celebrate, we’re taking you along on our stroll down memory lane all week. Today let’s take a look back at the headlines in the Journal Gazette back in 1953.

Watch the video to see Megan and Eric sit down with Terri Richardson from the Journal Gazette to discuss newspapers from November 1953. A lot has changed, but many headlines are reminiscent of something you would see now.
