The first national broadcast of Misterogers’ Neighborhood was on most National Education Television stations. When NET ceased broadcasting in 1970, PBS
assumed the network and its programming. It was also around this time that the
show had a title change, to the more-familiar Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. The
series was in production till February 20, 1976, and again from August 27, 1979
to August 31, 2001. The show was hosted by Fred Rogers.
