Celebrating its 60th year of broadcasting, Rocky Mountain PBS is hosting numerous events throughout its milestone anniversary year. The kick-off event was the grand opening party of the 60th Anniversary Exhibit held at the Denver Public Library on January 28, 2016.
Volunteers of Station's Archived Memories (SAM) worked hand-in-hand with Rocky Mountain PBS to create an exhibit to commemorate the evolution as the original KRMA-TV, Channel 6 (founded in 1956) to the Rocky Mountain Public Broadcasting Network that it is today.
Visitors to the exhibit can walk through decades of history featuring local productions, community events, regional and national recognitions, volunteer accomplishments and more.
Highlights of the exhibit include:
- Mock studio with vintage equipment
- Digital interactive station
- Browse over 100 photographs
- Over 30 memorabilia items
- In-depth station timeline
- Mrs. Bird, KRMA's original "mascot"
The exhibit was made possible through a partnership between The Denver Public Library and Rocky Mountain PBS. The exhibit remains open from January 11 through March 31, 2016.
Items in the exhibit have been meticulously preserved by the volunteers of Station's Archived Memories (SAM). Established in 2000, SAM is an award-winning volunteer-driven project serving the past, present and future of Rocky Mountain PBS to ensure that the station and its importance to the Colorado community will survive for generations to come.
