NPR and ATC 50th Anniversary

As NPR's All Things Considered celebrates 50 years, we're asking listeners to share their favorite stories from the past five decades.

NPR's first broadcast aired on April 20, 1971 - covering a senate committee hearing on the Vietnam War. A few weeks later, on May 3, All Things Considered made its radio debut covering a protest against the Vietnam War.

Then hosted by Robert Conley, the show covered the day's events, producing a 24 minute report of what was happening. Since then, All Things Considered has covered the biggest stories of the day, thoughtful commentary and insightful features.

Thanks to community support, WKSU is proud to broadcast All Things Considered to more than 20 Ohio counties and parts of western Pennsylvania.

Now, we want to know what stories from All Things Considered have stuck with you.
