CBS RADIO News KNX-A/LOS ANGELES is celebrating its 45th anniversary in the all-News format on MONDAY (4/15). The station flipped to all-News on APRIL 15, 1968.
Dir./News Programming ANDY LUDLUM said, “Since 1968 we’ve seen eight U.S. presidents, six CALIFORNIA governors and five L.A. mayors. We’ve had riots, fires, earthquakes, mudslides, hosted the OLYMPICS, lost a couple of football teams, rooted the LAKERS to 11 titles, watched OJ run wild on the freeways and recently endured a nightmarish hunt for a fugitive cop-killer.
“And through it all, KNX has embodied trust, integrity and credibility. We all feel a sense of responsibility to follow in the footsteps of so many great KNX news people like BILL KEENE, ALEX SULLIVAN, JON GOODMAN, BARRY ROHDE, BEACH ROGERS, DAVE ZORN and HARRY BIRRELL, to name just a few. You hear the pride in the great heritage of KNX in the work of today’s anchors like DICK HELTON, VICKY MOORE, TOM HAULE, LINDA NUNEZ, DIANE THOMPSON, JIM THORNTON and CHRIS SEDENS.”
