Channel 11 celebrated its 40th anniversary in an extravaganza taped at the Horn & Hardart Automat at 42nd Street and Third Avenue, just steps from our home of now 65 years, The News Building.

Tony Randall hosts, and the special guests include Chuck McCann, Zacherley, Jack McCarthy and other WPIX personalities.

This includes the original commercials from 1988.
