It’s Academic Celebrates 50 Years Partnership with Giant Foods (PHOTOS & VIDEO)

It’s Academic, the high school quiz show which started in 1961 on NBC4 in Washington D.C., is recognized as the world’s longest-running TV quiz show.

This year, the popular show is celebrating a 50-year partnership with Giant Foods.

The Montgomery County recognized the partnership on Oct. 4th by issuing a proclamation.

“It’s just amazing that it’s been 50 years,” said Jamie Miller, a spokesperson for Giant Foods.  “Giant has a long history of providing support for the community.”
