Did you know WICT was officially launched when its board of directors met July 30, 1979, in New York City to approve its bylaws. The first annual membership meeting was December 13 in Anaheim, California, at the Western Show.

Lucille Larkin stated in an article she wrote for the December 15, 1979, edition of TV Communications magazine, that the goals would be, “to highlight the accomplishments of women in cable; to broaden the arena in which they can contribute; to promote a high standard of business conduct; and to provide professional support, advice and information.”

Thank you, Ladies!
