    Retro: Tucson and Phoenix, December 8, 1980

    Source: Arizona Daily Star

    STATIONS
    3 – KTVK Phoenix (ABC)
    4 – KVOA Tucson (NBC)
    5 – KPHO Phoenix (independent)
    6 – KUAT Tucson (PBS)
    8 – KAET Phoenix (PBS)
    9 – KGUN Tucson (ABC)
    10 – KOOL Phoenix (CBS)
    11 – KZAZ Nogales (independent)
    12 – KPNX Mesa (NBC)
    13 – KOLD Tucson (CBS)
    The Star also lists a Spanish-language station on Channel 40, but doesn’t indicate what the call sign was; the current-day Channel 40 operation in Tucson, KPOL/KHRR, didn’t sign on the air until 1983, and then as an English-language indie. Perhaps this was a translator station relaying a Spanish-language broadcaster from Phoenix or somewhere in New Mexico?

    (The assassination of John Lennon took place during the next half hour in New York City. Kathleen Sullivan, on the then-infant Cable News Network, presented the first national TV bulletin of the shooting, a few minutes before Lennon’s death was announced at Roosevelt Hospital in New York. Howard Cosell interrupted the Patriots-Dolphins game with the first nationwide terrestrial TV bulletin of Lennon’s death. On the East Coast, an NBC utility announcer – Fred Facey, perhaps? – broke into The Best of Carson over an “NBC News Bulletin” graphic with NBC’s first network bulletin; jarringly, with no more information than the simple announcement, NBC went back to Johnny Carson’s comedy piece. Obviously, as Carson’s show hadn’t yet begun in the Mountain and Pacific Time zones, a separate bulletin was fed, presumably from Los Angeles, interrupting the Chet Atkins special or Little House on the Prairie. As for CBS, I know that Connie Chung did a KNXT Newsbreak headline report locally in Los Angeles, but I have not ever seen or heard the aircheck of a CBS-TV bulletin about the murder. I assume CBS broke into their rerun of Quincy on the East Coast, House Calls or Lou Grant in the Mountain zone, and local fringe programming or Flo on the West Coast.)

    That would be K40AC, now K48GX, a Telefutura translator. Ironically, Al Roho Vivo looks a lot like Al Rojo Vivo, which I believe is on Telemundo and currently airs on KHRR ch 40.

    I forgot to mention that K40AC was a repeater of KTVW-TV 33 Phoenix. The station signed on barely two months after KTVW did.

    While KOOL-TV channel 10 Phoenix (on tape) had a bit of wackiness with its daytime sked,
    just who was programming KOLD-TV 13 Tucson? It's all over the place. And ATWT on a
    day behind--what is this, Salt Lake City?

    If "Mr. That Girl" was their cornerstone for 9 AM, just air the two sitcom reruns live 8-9, then
    run the rest of CBS daytime on a one-hour delay in pattern from 10-3:30. Do that and you
    get your noon news at noon, not 12:30...and no need for those half-hour delays.

    Since the news title had a "41" in its title, I would think the station was repeating KWEX in San Antonio -- the SIN/Univision outlet on channel 41 in Albuquerque, KLUZ, would not sign on until 1987.

    I am aware that in the past, in the station IDs, the announcer will mentioned if the program was "on tape" or "on film". What if it was a live program, either in the studio or live off the network feed?

    It may be that KTVW-TV was getting the news program from KWEX, but K40AC was a KTVW repeater, according to their original construction permit from the FCC:

    Re "Nightline": at the time it was on 11:30-11:50 (ET/PT)/
    10:30-10:50 (CT/MT), although with the option to expand
    when necessary. Since these listings were obviously printed
    before the John Lennon murder, it would stand to reason that
    "Nightline" was expanded that night. Keep in mind that in the
    Eastern and Central time zones it would have aired 30 minutes
    after "Monday Night Football," since those ABC affiliates would
    have had local news at approximately 12M/11 PM, and possibly
    in the Mountain time zone as well, if the game ran past 10 PM.

    I would suspect that a separate, updated edition of "Nightline"
    aired at 11:30 (PT), since it was not uncommon for ABC to
    update a breaking story for the West Coast.

    Then simply "KOOL-TV channel 10 Phoenix." Unless they decided to "bless the nation."

    One small nitpick spelling error...

    40 at 2:30 is listed as "Juventude" – the last E is not needed. I imagine there were some Spanish spelling errors in these listings.

    Surprised there's no KNXV (signed on 1979) in this list, but this may be a VHF-only list.

    Is Meza 12 the NBC for Phoenix? I don't see one.
    USA Dance Mix Atlanta's 24/7 streaming Dance station. (Dance-Disco-House 1977 to today) iTUNES (Electronica section), Tunein, Streema, Nobex, Ootunes, etc.
