SATURDAY in Broadcast History .. Dec. 20th

LaMarsh_Judy

It’s the birthdate of Jonah Hill, Uri Geller, Irene Dunne, John Hillerman, Pamela Austin, and (pictured) the late MP and Vancouver (later CBC) Open Liner Judy Lamarsh.
Radio Australia began shortwave transmission, identified by the cry of the Kookabura bird; Vancouver’s CKWX was approved for an FM sister station, C-JAZ (it is now JACK FM at 96.9); Kelowna’s CILK FM was approved for sale to Standard Radio (now Astral); and NBC-TV experimented with no announcers on a Jets-Dolphins football telecast. It was not considered a success.
Bowing out forever on Dec. 20th were Carl Sagan, Foster Brooks, Arnold Stang, Brittany Murphy, Steve Landesberg, and the first black anchor on a network (ABC) newscast, Max Robinson.
ALL the milestones for the date INSIDE.
