Recognizing the cosmopolitan character of its community, WEWS has striven to increase harmony and understanding amid diversity by cooperating with varied racial, religious, and economic groups. In 1952 it televised more than 700 formal community service programs; it integrated public service and human relations material into many regular entertainment programs; and it drew upon a variety of religious and racial groups for talent and staff. Its daily telecourses are outstanding examples of cooperative public service.
