In addition, WQED, the PBS station in Pittsburgh that was the home of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, is renaming its studio after the kiddie show host. He was on the air at PBS for 40 years successfully entertaining children with no violence, little commercialism, and almost no special effects. Think about it.
