Pages from the Past
In 2005, in preparation for the City of Newport Beach’s Centennial Celebration the following year, City history began to be captured and preserved by NBTV. With the assistance of local researcher Gay Wassall-Kelly, who also hosts this fascinating program, little known facts and far more revealing memories are discovered of long ago times via interviews and visuals from long-time residents.
This is the longest running program on NBTV. Dogs, cats, birds, snakes, rabbits and many more animals needing homes all have the opportunity to be adopted via a city program which provides longer care at the Shelter for animals giving them a greater opportunity to be adopted.
