The second part of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the years 1981-1982 and memorable members of Congress over the past 25 years. Mr. Blankley talked about the impact of the call-in format on public policy, the role of television in U.S. politics, major political events and personalities over the past 25 years, and he responded to questions and comments from viewers.

An interview with 25th anniversary essay finalist Kathleen Holowach of El Cajon, Calif., as well as clips from previous call-in programs were aired.

The program was part of a 25-hour call-in marathon commemorating 25 years of viewer calls that began with television’s first-ever, regularly scheduled, national viewer call-in program on October 7, 1980, when the 19-month-old network televised a live viewer call-in program from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. close
