    I enjoyed watching the Channel One News program when I was in school! My family didn’t have cable in the mid 90′s when I was a teen, so this was my only source on current world events. I remember when Anderson Cooper and Lisa Ling were just getting started in their careers, both are excellent at providing clear informative information that’s easy to understand, they are why I still watch the news every day.

    Keep up the great work Channel 1, you not only opened my eyes but you changed how I look at the world! Thank you.
