Longest Running Daily Program Celebrates 50 Years On Tv

New York, NY -- On June 30, the longest running daily program in broadcast history will celebrate its 50th year on TV.

In honor of the event, the folks at "Guiding Light" have come up with some of the soap opera's more unusual milestones from its 65 years on radio and TV.

For instance, there have been 132 weddings on the show throughout its 16,401 episodes.

However, writers can't put a number on how many divorces have taken place in the same amount of time.

-- 10 characters on the soap have come back from the dead.

-- The two most recast characters are "Mike Bauer" and "Hope Bauer Spaulding." Each role has gone through six different actors.

-- An average of 265 episodes are shot every year.

-- And, finally, the most married character in the history of the show is Reva, played by Kim Zimmer. She's walked down the aisle a Liz Taylor-worthy seven times.
