Channel 4 plans to air a special about itself this Friday night and again on Super Bowl Sunday. Here's a blog preview from Franklin Avenue:
Paul Moyer and Colleen Williams are hosting; past KNBC personalities, including Tom Brokaw, Pat Sajak, Bryant Gumbel, Nick Clooney, Furnell Chatman, Kelly Lange, Linda Alverez and Jess Marlow are interviewed. The late John Shubeck and Tom Snyder are also remembered... and a segment will look at the incident when a gun-wielding man took David Horowitz hostage live on the air in 1987.
The station was originally KNBH, then KRCA, and was renamed KNBC when it moved from Hollywood to Burbank in 1962.
