The twenty-fifth and final hour of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the past years of television call-in programming and the role of such programming in public policy.

An interview with 25th anniversary essay contest finalist Ron LueDecke of Palms, Calif., was shown, and essay contest winner Erika Barger, a senior at Sea Breeze High School in Ormand Beach, Fla., co-hosted. 

The program completed 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
