Guiding Light Retrospective: 1937-2009

Guiding Light Retrospective

A special gallery featuring photos from ‘Guiding Light’ over the course of its 72 year history.

On Friday, September 18, 2009, CBS aired the final episode of Guiding Light. It was a sad day for millions of fans who have allowed these characters into their homes for decades and after 72 years (television and radio), the longest running drama in history finally had an ending.

TVSource Magazine decided to put together some galleries looking back at GL though the years. Hope you enjoy it!

TVS thanks the cast, crew, production and all involved who made Guiding Light what it was.

The final episode is available on our YouTube page! {jathumbnail off}
