Color Test Pattern for WKYC-TV
Page of Plain Dealer TV week June 21, 1965..KYW-TV had already changed to WKYC-TV 3 two days earler, but too late for presstime
Just a few notes here at midweek:
I'd like to publicly thank Ms. Vivian Goodman of WKSU-FM and Jim Davison for the kind comments on the "Cleveland Broadcast Museum" post a few days ago, as well as the other comments on that subject, and also the comments on the WKBF audio post..
Rich Emery of Hamilton, Ohio who writes to me regularly about posting ideas, and shares his thoughts about classic TV/Radio..has found a Olympia, Washington Newspaper obituary about Thomas T. Goldsmith, founder/operator of WTTG-TV 5 Washington, DC with Allen B. DuMont.
WTTG was one of the DuMont Network owned and operated stations and is now Fox 5..Goldsmith was one of the pioneers of early TV. He passed away March 5..
Also:I've gotten in touch with retired TV personality Gordon Ward through Facebook recently. Ward was an announcer/Newsman at WNBK/KYW-TV for much of the 1950's before spending many years as an anchorman at WTOL-11 "Toledo Eleven"..He is living in retirement at age 83 in the Toledo area..Always good to know some of the pioneers are still around..
Update:Here is Mr. Ward with a 1956 KYW-TV sign-off..
KYW-AM/FM Sign-off by Gordon Ward Mid 1950's,
