The Paley Center For Media


25 West 52nd Street, New York, NY 10019

Founded in 1975 by William S. Paley for the purpose of collecting, preserving and presenting to the public, television and radio programs the The Paley Center for Media is a nonprofit organization.

As stated in the name, this is a museum for radio and television programming. Located in the William S. Paley Building at West 52nd Street, it is one of a pair. The other being in Beverly Hills, California. It was in 1991 that this Manhattan location opened and the other in 1996.

Since opening its doors in 1976, the Museum has expanded the collection to include more than 100,000 programs chosen for their artistic, cultural, and historical significance. The collection covers news, drama, public affairs programs, documentaries, the performing arts, children’s programming, sports, comedy, and advertising.

Each year the Museum, using radio and television programs from the collection, organizes major exhibitions and screenings and listening series that focus on topics of social, historical, popular, or artistic interest. Seminars feature in-person discussions with writers, producers, directors, actors, and others involved with landmark programming. In addition, the Museum’s comprehensive education program welcomes special interest groups and students from the elementary to the university level and encourages them to become critical thinkers by interpreting and analyzing radio and television programs.

“Also at the museum are live and taped radio broadcasts throughout the year, where stations from across the country come to the Ralph Guild Radio Studio to broadcast their shows. These events are usually open to the public. As well are seminars throughout the year, whereby performers, critics, writers, directors, producers, and journalists come to the Museum to discuss topics ranging from the collaborative process behind programming to significant events in the media industry. The seminars include television and radio clips from the Museum’s collection, and time for the audience members to ask questions. ”
