As this year’s Liberation nears, one thing is for certain, our island has endured and overcome so much from occupation, war, and now a
pandemic. As our community braced itself from the Covid-19 virus, we are now just beginning to get on the path of healing and recovery. Guam is resilient, strong and will overcome this pandemic just like we did 76 years ago as we survived World War II and the Japanese Occupation.
The Guam Educational Telecommunications Corporation, also known as PBS Guam KGTF Channel 12 is pleased to announce that in celebration of the 76th Liberation Day, we will be broadcasting a one (1) hour Liberation special called, “76th Guam Liberation Day Commemoration” followed by the rebroadcast of the 75th Guam Liberation Day Parade. The one-hour
special, “76th Guam Liberation Day Commemoration” will showcase historical Liberation Day Parade moments beginning as far back as 1995. Together, enjoy over 5 hours of PBS, KGTF Channel 12’s Liberation programming.
Ina Carillo, General Manager states “Historically, July has been a month of celebration. From annual Liberation festivities, WWII village, and memorial ceremonies, to our annual parade. This month deserves to be celebrated, and the Covid-19 virus is not going to take that away from us. This is a time not only for celebration but for reflection. A time for our community to show our respect and honor our liberators, our soldiers, our vets, and most especially our survivors. I hope that you enjoy our Liberation Coverage this year as we at PBS pay respect to those who survived the atrocities of the war and those who fought for our freedom.
