The switch was at midnight. If a station was in the middle of a network program at midnight, the
station was authorized to continue airing the program to its conclusion.

I thought the switch was made that Saturday at midnight. On the NFL telecast the next day, Fox
made mention that three stations joined the network--WTVT in Tampa, WAGA in Atlanta and
WITI in Milwaukee.

officer and a gentleman from that day

This was the show ( this and "Top of the Pops" ) that was hosted by the late Jimmy Savile. One of
the BIGGEST scandals to had taken place in the UK for generations involved Savile. Do a google
search about this since there is so much out there such as this....

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...-hospital.html

and this...

Anyway long story short...do not expect to see "Jim'll Fix It" in reruns anytime soon.

Why is Sonic The Hedgehog is on KSKN 22 at 6:00 AM and not the Super Mario Bros. I hate Sonic
with a passion, because why does Sonic get to be on almost every over the air station that has
aired The Lionhearts and Mario only gets to be on half of them? I want Super Mario Bros.
cartoons on every OTA station that aired The Lionhearts so freaking badly, I WANT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll try to post KYW's first week as a CBS affiliate as soon as possible.

UPDATE: KYW Actually carried NBC News Nightside at 5:00am on Mon-Fri during that week.

ANOTHER CORRECTION: NBC Actually aired First Person With Maria Shriver at 10pm on
Wednesday September 5, 1995 that night.

ONE MORE CORRECTION: It's Actually "On Scene: Emergency Response" that the station was
actually showing at 6am on Saturdays at the time. Sorry about all of these corrections I'm
making here.

8pm 2 Mysterious Man of the Dhroud

That should be Mysterious Man of the Shroud.

Kind of odd that WNJU aired Maureen Hickley, Kenneth Copeland, and Creflo Dollar weekday
mornings despite being Telemundo's east coast flagship! I wonder if they were in English or
dubbed Spanish

They were probably dubbed in Spanish. And it's Marilyn Hickey.

That was before WNJU Telemundo 47 became 24-7 Spanish.

Looks like WJW was Cleveland's home for "Trash TV" in 1999 with Jerry Springer, Ricki Lake, and
Maury back to back to back

Looking back, now it sure seems that way. However, that was the line up on most FOX stations.
Most of those talk shows ended up on UPN/WB (Now, CW and MyTV)

Retro: Boston - Friday, November 22, 1963

Source – Boston Globe – Friday November 22, 1963

This is the schedule on the day of the JFK assassination. Obviously everything got preempted
after the reports from Dallas started coming in. Note that WBZ was off-network at the time
(running Mike Douglas, and I'm not sure if that was the live feed from Cleveland) so I don't know
at what point they joined NBC.

I’m not sure what educational stations did after the news came in. I do know that WGBH was
equipped to take feeds from the networks for various public affairs programs that weren’t being
cleared by the local affiliates. If anyone can clarify this please do.

Most appropriate that you would put up the schedules for JFK's part of the country. If you have
the Saturday and Sunday schedules, I wouldn't mind seeing them.

Since I'm not from Boston, I don't know how WGBH handled the coverage of the assassination
and its aftermath; after all, Boston had three network affiliates. It's not like our situation in
Raleigh, with an ABC station (WRAL) and a CBS one (WTVD), but no fulltime NBC affiliate. In our
case, WUNC, the educational (as public television was called in 1963) channel carried NBC's
coverage.

I wonder if anybody can tell me how the CBS situation was handled in Birmingham, where there
was an ABC station (WBRC) and a station that favored NBC news (WAPI, now WVTM), but no
fulltime CBS affiliate (and Cronkite wasn't carried there). Likewise, ABC was likely blacked out in
Charlotte, with WBTV (CBS) and WSOC (NBC) but no ABC station until 1964.

Douglas was always on tape in Boston (Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Baltimore and Boston were
always one week behind) - the tapes were bicycled from market to market. Buffalo for example
might gave gotten the tapes from Boston and then send them to Columbus)

It appears only CBS was network at the time that was feeding programming.

WGBH-TV had just moved into Western Ave a couple of months earlier and they indeed had a
two telco lines from New England Telephone on Franklin St which was the switching center for
AT&T long lines.

NBC and ABC went local at 1:30p - they didn't want to compete with "As The World Turns".

The first WBZ-4 bulletin was a local one at about 1:40.

I don't know who voiced it; it could have been Jim Jensen (a news anchor there at the time), or
either Lindy Miller or Dick Tucker (both of whom were booth announcers at WBZ then).
I remember this because I was a month shy of my 8th birthday and my kid brother (age 4 1/2)
and I were indeed watching "Mike Douglas".

My brother and I woke our Mom up yelling that "The President's Been Shot!".

But by the time she got up, WBZ had (briefly) returned to "Mike Douglas", and she yelled at us
for saying something in bad taste, screaming "If President Kennedy had really been shot, they
wouldn't be running 'Mike Douglas'...".

But as soon as she finished "Douglas", a second bulletin, this time from NBC (I think it would be
1:45) came on.

She apologized to us.

I believe NBC made it's coverage available to independent and noncommercial stations, and that
WGBH-2 picked it up.

By request for bpatrick here's the Boston schedules for Saturday and Sunday that week:

Source – Boston Globe – Saturday, November 23 and Sunday November 24, 1963
These are the TV schedules that did not run due to the Kennedy Assassination. They were found
in the TV Week section on November 17 (Saturday) and November 24 (Sunday). I have noted
where the prime-time shows were actually aired for those episodes I could find information
about.

This era was when NBC and WHDH-TV were holding hands as NBC despised Westinghouse.

WBZ-TV didn't clear Meet The Press and Channel 5 fed a show to the entire NBC network on
Saturday. (plus 5 ran the Tonight Show as Group W had Steve Allen)
However the HT never got the permanent license so NBC never made the change.

And, if the WHDH deal didn't happen NBC was trying to buy WNAC from RKO General. That fell
through because NBC wanted to use WRCV Philadelphia in a trade while the Department of
Justice was deciding whether to return the station to Westinghouse.

Not exactly. The stations NBC would have traded to RKO would have been WRC AM-FM-TV in
Washington. The mess with Westinghouse in Philadelphia and Cleveland indeed held up the
WRC/WNAC swap and eventually killed it.

I remember seeing in Broadcast magazine at some point NBC proposed trading the Philly
stations for WNAC AM/FM/TV and then doing a cash deal for WRC AM/FM/TV. That could have
been just a rumor or someone throwing out a possibility. Either way it didn't happen, despite
years of trying.

Actually Washington AND Philly were in the mix.

In 1959, RKO and NBC reached an agreement on what would have been the highest-priced
license transfer in broadcasting history to that time. The deal would have seen RKO acquire
NBC's WRC-AM-FM-TV in Washington, swap WNAC-AM-TV and WRKO-FM (the former WNAC-
FM) in Boston to NBC for that company's WRCV-AM-TV in Philadelphia, and sell the WGMS
stations in Washington to Crowell-Collier Broadcasting (as Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) regulations at that time would not permit ownership of both the WRC stations and the
WGMS stations).

NBC just wanted to be rid of Westinghouse. I surmise NBC then would have gone after another
market as they would have an open slot.

Years later Jerry Williams took a job at WRC-AM thinking it had a powerful signal which of course
was wrong.

As I suspected NBC did have another market in its sights. San Francisco.

Stupid question - why didn't NBC just award the affiliation to WNAC at a point when the contract
with WBZ was up? Were they wary of RKO General's history of preemptions of afternoon
programming for movies? Or did they just think they could muscle a deal so that wasn't
necessary?

Hard to believe that NBC would give up an O & O in Washington, DC.

I don't know who voiced it; it could have been Jim Jensen (a news anchor there at the time), or

I remember this because I was a month shy of my 8th birthday and my kid brother (age 4 1/2)
and I were indeed watching "Mike Douglas".

My brother and I woke our Mom up yelling that "The President's Been Shot!".

But by the time she got up, WBZ had (briefly) returned to "Mike Douglas", and she yelled at us
for saying something in bad taste, screaming "If President Kennedy had really been shot, they
wouldn't be running 'Mike Douglas'...".

But as soon as she finished "Douglas", a second bulletin, this time from NBC (I think it would be
1:45) came on.

She apologized to us.

I believe NBC made it's coverage available to independent and noncommercial stations, and that
WGBH-2 picked it up.

how did Mike Douglas handle the situation? did he stop the show?

i heard a interview with Mike Douglas and he said that John Dancy came into the studio to
announce the shooting Mike said he tried to go to another segment he gave up switching to
Frank McGee he said they had to tape 22 minutes that day

Not sure what NBC was doing before they started covering the shooting though

Local in the east, Missing Links in the west.

How is it that in the Dallas listings for 11/22/63 (posted elsewhere) that Route 66's episode was
"A Cage In Search Of A Bird" and everywhere else it was "Kiss The Monster, Make Him Sleep"?

Also not true.

The ABC "live feed" of FKB was 12:30-1:00 PM ET.


What is on the YouTube video was recorded from a downline affiliate which delayed FKB a hour
into the half-hour local hole for ABC daytime at 1:30-2:00 PM ET. I have yet to figure out which
station it was. Notice on the playback whenever said station cuts from their video tape to ABC
live (for a news bulletin), or back to the video tape, the video rolls all over the place, as this was
years before frame synchronizers were even thought of for local stations.

Actually, WFAA was in local programming. It was The Julie Benell Show. I don't know whether the
show was live or on tape.

At first, I would have voted for on tape, since the tape on YouTube breaks up all over the place
when WFAA-TV switches from the talk show to Jay Watson live in studio with the station's first
JFK bulletin. But wait...it shouldn't have broken up (as it would have on a switch from local to
network) since WFAA's tape machines and studio cameras should have been on the same (local)
synch.

And then there's the background noise in the seconds before the switch--probably setting up
Watson to do his thing in another part of the studio. That would indicate to me that the talk
show was live. So I can't explain the synch break up at the switch. Any long-time WFAAers still
around to shed some more light?

And David Von Pein's YouTube channel has both WFAA local & ABC national coverage (Two
different videos but the coverage eventually becomes one once ABC & WFAA hook up for then-
unprecedented coverage even though DVP has both ABC national & WFAA local coverage on his
channel)

The coverage from WFAA & ABC on TV could only be rivaled by WFAA & NBC on radio (But of
course in the early hours of coverage, people in Dallas could only hear NBC Radio via WBAP even
though WFAA Radio was the NBC Radio affiliate

...both WFAA and WBAP were affiliated with the ABC and NBC radio networks. WBAP and WFAA
were still sharing two frequencies, 570 kHz (5,000 watts) and 820 kHz (50,000 watts), in an
arrangement that had its roots in the 1920s, trading freqs every six hours at 3:00 and 9:00 AM
and 3:00 and 9:00 PM. ABC affiliation stayed with the 570 frequency, whereas NBC was always
heard on 820; at the time of the assassination, WFAA was on 570 and WBAP on 820. Both ABC
and NBC relied more heavily on WFAA for reportage, as they were owned by the Dallas Morning
News and their studios were a couple of blocks away from Dealey Plaza, while WBAP was owned
by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and its studios were 30 miles to the west...

Actually, it was a little more complicated than that, King. There were multiple flips during the day
and prime-time hours were allocated by day of the week.

This article includes a reprint of a 1931 schedule for (then) 800kc -- this link is the full article
from which that reprint was taken -- and this page has a scan of an actual 3:00pm-to-midnight
seven-day grid for WFAA from the 1960s.

The arrangement lasted until May 1, 1970. On that date, WBAP's purchase of the portion of
820kHz they did not already own was consummated and they went full-time on that frequency.
That deal included WFAA receiving ownership of the portion of 570kHz they didn't already have.

...many thanks for the correction, KMR. And I notice on those pages that both station had FM
sisters -- Classical WBAP-FM on 96.3 and Easy Listening WFAA-FM at 97.9. I still wonder exactly
what the FMs did that afternoon, as simply simulcasting the AMs would wind up interrupting
reports from each network at trade-off time. It would probably have made more sense to have
the FMs match up with the affiliations of the TV stations, with WBAP-FM going with NBC and
WFAA-FM running ABC. But I've never found out what happened on that end of things...

I suspect that answer is lost to history, King. FM was still relatively new, most of its audience was
audiophiles at that point, and no one would have bothered to note what happened. Unless we
can find former staffers of those stations -- and even if they were still fairly young (in their 20s)
when Kennedy was assassinated, they'd be in their early 70s in the best case scenario. It's more
likely that those who know have carried that knowledge to their graves already. Unfortunate,
because it is an interesting unanswered question.

If the suggestion was that Batchelor Father was on the entire ABC network at the time of the first
network bulletin, that claim is false. Only a selected few stations, such as WABC-TV in New York
and a few other Owned and operated stations carried Batchelor Father and some of them
carried it on a delayed basis. The other affiliates carried either syndicated or local programming.
WFAA-TV in Dallas was not carrying Batchelor Father but was instead airing a live, locally
produced program called The Julie Benell Show. The program was interrupted when Program Jay
Watson came on to announce the shooting in Deally Plaza.

I made a similar comment earlier in this thread--that the live feed for Bachelor Father on ABC
was 12:30-1:00 PM ET.

For example: KTVK Phoenix and KGUN-TV Tucson both aired the show "live" from 10:30-11:00
AM MT. BTW, neither was an O&O.

Any later airing (such as 1:30-2:00 PM ET) was via tape delay at an individual station.

Save AM radio...kill I-CRAP.

I'm thinking the show we're talking about is Father Knows Best on ABC, not Bachelor Father on
NBC.

The recording of Father Knows Best does sort of look like it's a recording of the network feed and
not of the station's output. (And why WOULD they record their output?) For instance, at the end
of the show after the network promo/ID, they don't cut to a local break or even a station ID. If
one station had been feeding the show to another, you wouldn't have seen the network cut-ins.

Didn't ABC operate on Clock Time in the early 60s? If that's the case, it could have been recorded
at any station in the Central time zone.

Correct. Douglas was interviewing a government official (and later first HUD secretary), Robert
Weaver, at the time. While talking to him, he could see Dancy (then known as "Bud") walking
down through the studio bleachers, out of the corner of his eye. Obviously a little flustered from
the oddity of Dancy doing that, he asked what was going on...

Was any pro wrestling aired in this country?

Are you referring to WWE?

Only local wrestling shows meant for kids. 100% Lucha (2006-2010) was the latest that had the
most success.

The only exception was when Canal 9 aired Raw and Smackdown (international 60 min. versions)
on weekend mornings between 2006 and 2009, with the PPVs being shown on a one week delay
on Sundays at noon. All three were bumped to weekdays at 1:30-4:30am (an assortment of new
and old episodes) in late 2009 before being dumped altogether in January 2010. American
wrestling hasn't been shown on terrestrial TV ever since, with Raw and Smackdown being shown
live and unedited (save for a Spanish narration) from the US on FOX Sports 2 and the PPVs also
live on FOX Action (a premium film channel belonging to the FOX+ channel suite, a Latin
American equivalent of Starz).

WWJ 62 - CBS

11:00 Late Show with David Letterman (was 62 airing it delayed from the day before?)

No. CBS provided the same day show to WGPR/WWJ 30 minutes earlier than the rest of the
network.

I lived in Detroit at the time and remember seeing the show. When WGPR first switched to CBS,
they heavily promoted Letterman at the earlier time. The newspaper even did stories about the
"special arrangement" with CBS.

I don't know at what point they started airing Letterman at 11:35. It was probably in 2001 when
they briefly tried an 11 PM newscast.

Maybe they received a special early feed.

Kind of odd that the Blade had WWJ since it's the weakest of the Detroit stations (it's not carried
in Bedford [Detroit DMA] while most other Detroit stations are (including both WMYD and
WKBD))

No listings from Radio-Canada's CBEFT?

This paper only listed CBET, and not other over-the-air Canadian stations.

I realize I messed up and it's too late to edit: Ann Curry was still anchoring NBC News at Sunrise
at that point in 1996, not Linda Vester.

I imagine that Elizabeth Taylor got a lot of money to appear in those shows.

It was a thinly-veiled rouse to hawk her perfume.

Here's what I think KSKN aired what was Non-HSN programming that day...

7:00 am - Blinky Bill

7:30 am - Bananas in Pajamas


8:00 am - Sailor Moon

8:30 am - California Dreams

Thanks! I always forget about that period of KSKN.

Some in Spokane don't realize that Charles Rowe was a major market anchor in Chicago and Los
Angeles before anchoring in Spokane. A true talent.

Spokane was lucky to have Charles Rowe and Randy Shaw as long as we did. They (and Richard
Brown, who wasn't here as long as the other two) were world class broadcasters.

Kind of odd seeing The Simpsons on a Big Three station, especially one on VHF

And it was on KREM for two or three seasons, until KREM began their SSA with KSKN.

Can you also post listings for the Independents..

Detroit:
WXON Ch. 20

WKBD Ch. 50

WGPR Ch. 62

Toledo:

WUPW Ch. 36

I don't recall the $1,000,000 chance of a lifetime. WTOL always did pretty well considering it had
competition from another affiliate in Detroit. I didn't know they had Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy
back then. Thanks for posting this.

I made a mistake. I meant to say that the three episodes of the Charades game show Body
Language that Vicki Lawrence & Ted Lange did together originally respectively aired on
December 30, 1985, January 2, 1986, and January 3, 1986. My bad.

anabate123, I'll get to that eventually.

I'm guessing that ch. 2 carried the WWF at 11am in those days.

Yep, they did...WJBK had WWF syndicated shows right through the early years of their Fox
affiliation. On Saturdays, it was "Superstars of Wrestling".

Was WUPW even on the air in '86? I moved to Toledo in '88 and it seems to me

they were a fairly new station at that time.

They first went on the air in September 1985; from this link from the Vintage Toledo TV site,
WUPW was in TV Guide (at least in the Toledo-Lima edition, which also included listings from
Detroit, Fort Wayne, and Dayton) from day one. I would imagine the same happened with the
Detroit edition.

Retro: New York City TV Schedules - Commercial Independents - Week of 9-4-72


This also from New Jersey Herald - September 3, 1972 edition as well as the September 10 1972
edition for SUnday. - The Network stations had little special programming on Labor Day except
for ABC but that was mostly Olympics coverage which they would have had anyway. But the
independent stations had quite a bit of special programming. Channel 5 had the Labor Day
Telethon the entire day. Channels 9 and 11 had quite a bit of sports programming that day. Here

new York City its first Noon Newscast being the Network stations were O & O's and committed to
Network offerings well into the late 80's. Until then Channel 9 had the only midday live newscast
and it was a success - The reason I think they dumped the 10 PM Newscast was because of the
large amount of sports run on the station in prime time. The news would be preempted more
than it aired.)

WOR TV was in transition from a traditional independent focusing on broad based


entertainment to a station focusing more on old movies, sports, game shows, and drama shows.
cartoons were about to fall off WOR TV one by one and sitcoms soon followed. WOR TV at this
point sought to counter program against WNEW TV and WPIX and did so successfully.

waiting for the cartoons. His logic were the Davey Kids would keep WPIX on and sit through his
show waiting for the 8 AM Cartoons. I simply did not start watching till 8 - would watch Channel

Channel 5 offered fewer movies than the rest and they tended to be older ones. Part of the
reason was first run shows were on in prime time like Merv and News. Merv in Prime Time was a
Metromedia thing. Most Metromedia Stations ran fewer movies than most independents.
Metromedia tended to rely heavily on sitcoms for their stations. Channel 5 was the leading
independent with WPIX somewhat behind and WOR TV was the also ran.

Re: Retro: New York City TV Schedules - Commercial Independents - Week of 9-4-72

How long did WOR have the pre-'48 a.a.p.-syndicated Warners' toons in the period up to '72? I
know their first appearance was on what was then WABD in the mid-'50's . . .

Also:

- The 10 P.M. newscast WOR had back then was called News Digest; after it moved to 5 P.M. it
became First News.

- The Mr. Magoo 'toons by 1979 were at WPIX.

- Fright Night did not exist until 1973; their late Saturday night/early Sunday morning horror
movie skein in those days was known as Tales of Terror.

- I don't know about the Sunday 5 P.M. movie, but the 7 P.M. movie skein went under The Big
Preview umbrella; their late Sunday night/early Monday morning movie at midnight was
branded the Sunday Night Showcase.

- The Eight O'Clock Movie title didn't apply to WPIX's movie at that time until the end of 1974;
their skein back then was called Friday's Movie at Eight.

- The movie skein that ran Abbott & Costello movies on Sunday afternoons was actually called
Sunday's Movie at Noon, after moving to 11:30 A.M. in '73 (with Hot Butter's "Popcorn" as the
theme) it was re-branded the Sunday Morning Movie.

- After Eastside Comedy (whose theme music as of 1973 was Vic Mizzy's "One Little, Two Little,
Three Little Tombstones" music cue from The Addams Family), WNEW's Sunday movie block
was: Five Star Movie, followed by Metromedia Movie and (at 6 P.M., after Rawhide) Sunday
Playhouse (later to become Weekend Playhouse).

- The announcers for the indies back then would have been as follows: WNEW-TV - Tom Gregory,
Ed Ladd, Fred Scott, Lou Steele, plus (part-timer) Bob Jones and possibly Barbara Korsen; WOR-
TV - Russ Dunbar, Frank McCarthy, Phil Tonken, Ted Mallie and (possibly) Fred Maness; probably
Bob Jordan, plus P/T'ers Cable Spence and Jim Lounsbury, and probably (at this early point)
Connecticut-based freelancer Ray Marlin; WPIX - (that I know of) Bill Biery, Joe Bolton, Roy
Whitfield (Ralph Lowenstein did not join the station as an announcer until 1974) - did 11 have
other staff announcers besides these names as of '72?

Re: Retro: New York City TV Schedules - Commercial Independents - Week of 9-4-72

My guess is that WOR TV had pre 48 Warner Brothers Cartoons from the late 60's to about 1973
when they quietly went to WNEW TV.

Did not know the name of WOR TV newscasts for those are not listed in TV Guide. Also the same
with other titles so I could be wrong about many of the titles. Mister Magoo fell off WOR TV in
1977 sometime and went to WPIX in the Fall of 1978. So many shows that fell off WOR TV went
other places while some like the Beverly hillbillies did not

Notice that Columbia's CBS affiliate aired Andy Griffith (which was and still is very popular in the
South) instead of an 11pm newscast

I don't know when, but the WLTX's 11pm was introduced in the early 1990s.

And that WIS had news in all four dayparts. The reason why WIS was (and still is) #1.

Was WIS benefited for having a 7pm newscast or was benefited because it's on a VHF
frequency?

So Mike and Maty aired for a half-hour in Wilmington?

According to the paper, it looks like channel 3 aired just a half-hour. I don't know why, but I
remember that the program was preempted in larger markets, like Boston.

"The Millionairess" (1960)

"Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966)

Interesting. As late at 1985, Buenos Aires, had only five TV stations, all VHF. Buenos Aires is the
fourth largest metro area in the Americas, between NYC, #3, and LA, #5.
They all sign on in late morning (no local version of the Today Show or Good Morning America).
Only two stay on the air past 1 am. Channel 2 uses many U.S. shows, with 7 and 9 using some. 11
and 13 use none, but they do air a lot of soap operas.

I see that 11 signs on with the Mexican version of Sesame Street. It never occurred to me that it
isn't simply a Spanish-language version. But then, I guess the accents are different. I suppose
Mexico supplies a lot of programming to other Latin American countries.

The Mexican accent is very different from the Argentine, but Televisa long ago learned the art of
doing neutral Spanish so they could syndicate product. The major difference between countries
is language usage, so they have to carefully write all scripts, too.

Colombia, which has the most "pure" Spanish in the Hemisphere syndicates lots of programming
in upper South America and Central America, too. Argentina, with its different verb usage and
very unusual accent, does not export much programming except to Southern Cone nations as it
is difficult for others to understand.

As has been said, "Twenty countries separated by a single language".

Of course, many of these countries send their channels via satellite to the USA, so we get these
different countries' accents on their respective cable channels. I hear different forms of Spanish
spoken in my home town of Boston, so I know how it feels.

Did The Professionals air in the U.S.? Here in Argentina had a moderate success; the opposite
happened with Dallas and Dynasty, which were two of the most watched shows through the
1980s.

Three runs of Jerry Springer on WTTV? And one at 5PM? That must have been startling for
children, going from WB Kids and cereal/toy ads, to strippers fighting and brawling each other.

And 1 1/2 hours of infomercials on WXIN, midday no less. They could have put Arrest and
Trial/Charlie's Angels etc. at 1-2:30, and swapped 3AM for infomercials like everyone else!

The 5pm airing of Springer on WTTV lasted for years. For example, the 1998 schedule posted last
month:

https://www.radiodiscussions.com/show...ay-May-19-1998

I can't remember when Springer moved to WXIN. It might not have been until Tribune purchased
WTTV in '02.

This day was also the last day WRTV was really a player in the Indianapolis news market. For
most if not all of the time since Clyde and Dion left, WRTV's evening and late news has been in
4th place.

No way to escape the Communist propaganda in the GDR! Either you had Aktuelle Camera or
The Black Channel

Funnily enough, Venezuela has plenty of that kind of programmes on state TV, and Argentina
even had its 6-day-a-week, 90-minute-long "this is how the private/foreign media lies"
programme on state TV from 2009 to 2015 until the change of government forced its way out.
