The Foote Files
For more than 30 years, CBS has been a proud partner with the NCAA to bring you the men’s basketball tournament. But that results schedule changes to some other shows.
Thirty years. Five television stations. One market. That, in a nutshell, describes my TV career since 1984. I am proud of that story, and humbled by the success I have had.
With the Big 12 Men’s Basketball Tournament coming up March 12 through March 14, I want to make sure that you know about where “Jeopardy!” will air those three days.
We lost Jim Lange on Tuesday at the age of 81. Lange, best known as host of “The Dating Game,” was one of those rare individuals who had successful careers in both radio and TV.
Last week, CBS promoted Nina Tassler from President to Chairman of CBS Entertainment. For me, as a local CBS programmer, this was the best news of the week — maybe the year.
We lost four more actors this past week. The men and women in entertainment owe a lot to these people. Thank you all for the great times. Your work will live on for years.
I cannot believe it has been 50 years since the pop music phenomenon known as “The British Invasion” hit the shores of America from coast to coast and border to border.
Beautiful music stations were a staple of radio programming for many years until other formats took hold such as Top 40 and all-news. Artists included Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Mathis and more.
This afternoon one of our employees reminded me of the character Emma Peel from the 1960’s TV series ‘The Avengers’. Now I won’t reveal details of what triggered that but let’s just say that it gave me an idea for this week’s blog.
We lost two character actors this week, one of them you can see on MeTV, KTXA-DT 21.2.
There are some updates about the newly launched MeTV. Three programs that were being covered up, including “Perry Mason,” are now available and being shown!
Well this is the week we say goodbye to those people who shaped the radio/television/entertainment business. Below is only a partial list of those we lost this year. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families.
