Vol.3 No.47 Dec.10 1969 Grace Potts, Editor
The long wait is over and all of you should know by now that the FCC has
approved the sale of WKNR to Johns Communications. The buyers will
officially assume ownership of the station on Monday, December 15.
On Monday, December 8, Mrs. Knorr celebrated her birthday. It would appear
thzt the FCC held off their approval to make her day a little happier. She
was also put to work on that day cutting the big cake presented to her in
celebration of the event. For those who didn't see it, the cake was
decorated with the following words:
"Happy Birthday to Mrs. Knorr from the FCC, Dean Burch, Chairman!"
This year's WKNR Christmas card will be one of our most unique. At our
request, the Boys' Clubs of Detroit were invited to compete in a project of
drawing original Christmas cards, the theme of which was "What Christmas
Means to Me." The boys put their thoughts on paper, with drawings, etc. 200
boys participated from the inner city club on West Grand Blvd. Four of their
best efforts were chosen by us and have been reproduced in color on a
fourfold card. 1700 of them will be sent to agencies, clients and VIP's.
Paul Cannon advises us that a tape of the show in which he and Russ Gibb
participated in California in connection with the Paul McCartney story will
be sho!1 on Channel 9 on December 20 at 7:00 PM.
