New Orleans CBS affiliate WWL is celebrating the 55th anniversary of the date it began broadcasting, September 7, 1957.

The station has assembled a photo gallery of its most famous anchors, including this one of Bill Elder, who anchored WWL’s 5 p.m. newscast for more than three decades.

“Thank you for watching and supporting us all these years and for many years to come!” the station said in a statement.
