Dave Warawa - PROSALESGUY Training

WEDNESDAY in Broadcast History .. October 1st

JimmyPattison

A huge date in Canadian broadcasting, as the CTV network was born with stations from Vancouver to Halifax. CBC-FM also went coast to coast for the first time, and the CBC’s Montreal station produced Canada’s first colour telecast. Much More Music debuted on the country’s cablesystems; Vancouver’s CJOR moved down the dial to its longtime home at 600 KHz; Duncan BC got its own radio station as CKAY AM1500 debuted; the second national CBC radio network (The Dominion network) went dark as more national advertising migrated from radio to TV. STAR FM debuted with two transmitters in the Fraser Valley, and Calgary’s CFXL AM1140 (successor to Top 40 powerhouse CKXL) transitioned to FM. In Nanaimo, CKEG AM 1570 moved from a country format to ‘Feelgood Oldies.’
And it’s the birthday of radio tycoon Jimmy Pattison.
Details of these, and Johnny Carson’s first hosting of NBC’s ‘Tonight Show,’ indeed ALL the October 1st broadcast milestones INSIDE.

The NFL has warned that if the blackout rule is ended, it could mean even more games will move from free broadcast TV to pay TV; but opponents of the rule point out pro football games on broadcast remain highly rated and the licensing rights are extremely lucrative for the league and its 32 teams.
