Wall $treet Week, 1970-2005

OWINGS MILLS, Md., March 24 (UPI) -- Maryland Public Television said Thursday it would retire its long-running series "Wall $treet Week" at the end of June.

The 35-year-old show, which made host Louis Rukeyser a household name across the United States and Wall Street more comprehensible to Main Street, is being terminated because of a lack of underwriting support, said Robert J. Shuman, chief executive of MPT.

"It became clear that difficult market conditions impeded our ability to secure the necessary underwriting support necessary to continue production," Shuman said.

The show, to air for the last time Friday, June 24, averaged a national weekly audience exceeding 1 million viewers since its inception.
