As Wednesday is Eyewitness News day at the Broadcast Pioneers’ luncheon, it got me thinking about KYW through the years.
Just a few memories:
Patrick Emory and Beverly Williams getting fired between the 6 and 11 p.m. shows.
The “Beverly’s Back” campaign
Of course, the Camelot days of Jessica Savitch, Mort Crim, Vince Leonard, Bill Custer, and Al Meltzer
Bill Currie and his flower in his lapel
Diane Allen and Steve Bell
Evening Magazine with Ray Murray and Nancy Glass
People Are Talking with Maury Povich
Saturday Night Dead with Stella, the Maneater from Manyunk
The Rock Report with Cyndi Drue
Feel free to add your own person or memory from the past. The more obscure, the better.
A great resource for old Channel 3 and other station’s people is TV News Philadelphia. It hasn’t added new content for years, but it still has alot of good information.
