Open scrapbook to 1977.
Here are some of the
early KUAC-TV logos.
In the summer of this year, while I was on vacation, I was told of a
report on a police scanner that Pump Station 8 of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline
had exploded and burned. I immediately called KUAC to see if anyone there had
heard about it. They had not but Myron Tisdel, the TV Program Manager, thought
that the McNeil-Lehrer News Hour might be interested in some pictures. It turned
out they were so the station chartered a plane to fly him with a 16-mm movie
camera down to the site. I grabbed my camera, hurried up to the station where
I picked a Nagra tape recorder and off to the airport with Myron. We circled
the site several times while Myron filmed, I recorded a description of the site
for NPR and took these pictures.
