This page has some classic clips from WTIC 1080. I listened to the show Mikeline from November 22, 1963. The station must have been an NBC affiliate at the time, because Edwin Newman was the one providing news on the Kennedy assassination. By the way, the men behind the microphone those days sounded profundo compared to today’s screamers. There’s also some Arnold Dean clips in there. I don’t think you could sell a sports show like that today to advertisers. I think he still shows up on 1080 occasionally. It’s amazing how many of these folks from 30 years ago are still there or elsewhere in the Hartford media. I believe that Mike Allen, Bruce DePriest, and Dana Whalen are still around.
