The Foote Files
Well, Super Bowl Sunday is only a few days away. The granddaddy of sporting events (or most events for that matter) is on CBS 11 and America’s Most Watched Network: CBS.
Can you believe that it has been nearly 43 years since President Nixon signed a bill into law that banned cigarette advertising on radio and television? We were in the Vietnam War.
My aunt’s recent passing made me, once again, pause and reflect on life. In the DFW radio and television industry, we lost a few memorable folks this year.
Radio stations are like people who we invite into our cars and homes. We don’t want them to change and we want them around forever. Unfortunately, that doesn’t apply in radio.
This year the world said goodbye to many famous public figures and celebrities. We can’t cover them all here in a blog but I will cover those who made contributions to the CBS Television Network that has made it the most successful television network in the history of mankind:

I love December. Not just because it is the last month of the year and a time to be with family, but because there are a lot of holiday shows that CBS and CBS 11 airs.
I thought this week I would depart from the normal “eyewitness to history” theme that this blog is about and speak to you from the heart about what Thanksgiving means to me.
Looking back at the 1972 programming lineups for CBS, ABC and NBC, each and every week of the night had a prime time movie on television. Times have certainly changed.
These past few days remind me why I love being in broadcasting over these past 40 years. When adversity hits, broadcasters have always risen to the challenge.
