CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - As people gather to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day, 22News celebrates a milestone of its own, 60 years on air!
It was on this date, March 17th, 1953, that 22News, WWLP, went on the air for the first time.
We were a broadcast pioneer here in Western Massachusetts, the first television station on the air to serve the Pioneer Valley.
Much has changed since those early days, but we're proud to have responded to your needs both for entertainment and news during the span of more than half a century.
