Abstract: The purpose of this study is to describe the historical development of a local television program over a 30-year period, 1957-1987, and how the program interrelated with the community in which it was set. Additional material relates to (a) the program's meaning as it relates to its original creator-producer-host, (b) its relationship with events surrounding the desegregation of the Greensboro Public Schools, and (c) the introduction of females as co-hosts of the program. The historical relationship of the program to the community and to its host producer was developed by using the autobiographical method as a way of inquiring into the nature of a man and his creative activity. The validity of the autobiographical method is supported by an accepted statistical analysis of the program, which demographically describes the program's viewership and its competitive relationship to other morning television programs.
