On the scene at Texas’ first television station before it was even on the air, Emmy Award winner Bobbie Wygant blazed trails throughout her seventy-year broadcasting career at WBAP-TV. She was the first Texas broadcaster and the sixteenth in the nation to be inducted into the prestigious Gold Circle of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
In 1960, Wygant became the first female in the southwest to host/produce a general-interest television interview program. She was live on the air when the Kennedy assassination took place on her thirty-seventh birthday, November 22, 1963. This colorful 2019 memoir – signed by the author – includes more than 300 photographs.
In addition to an oral history, Ms. Wygant participated in a Museum public program in 2019. The recording can be viewed in full on the Museum’s YouTube channel.
