RTV6 is celebrating 70 Years Together! May 30th marks the 70th anniversary of Channel 6, originally WFBM, going on the air in 1949 as the first TV station in the state of Indiana. Every day during the month of May, we'll be reaching into the archives and talking with current and former staff members to share some of their memories and noteworthy moments with you.

Much has changed over the past 70 years, and that includes technology. In April 1988, we showed you the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department's new crime prediction program.
