The Backstory: Reflections on 47-years of Washington Week
On February 23, 1967, the public television station in Washington, DC, WETA, launched a new public affairs roundtable program called Washington Week in Review.
47-years later, Washington Week continues as a venerable staple of PBS programming every Friday night.
The one constant: announcer Paul Anthony, who has been with the program since the very beginning. He shares his Backstory reflections on the early days and evolution of the longest running primetime news program on television.
