New York, NY, USA

I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s, during a time when children’s television programming was simpler, and focused more on promoting ideas like personal creativity and individuality.. The ‘entertainment’ aspect of each show was always secondary to real messages about virtue and values.. Shows on WNET like Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, The Electric Company, Sesame Street, and Zoom were mainstays in our home for years. Seeing the positive effect it had on not just myself, but my entire generation, I’ve been inspired recently to help promote the next generation of independent/homegrown children’s programming online, by supporting Tepper’s Tots (pictured above), and others. My thanks to WNET for making good programming choices so long ago, and realizing the importance of quality children’s programming.
