That was certainly true for WMUR-TV in Manchester.  Hokey, really bad small 
market tv until sometime in the 80s when a chain bought them.  I don't 
think Hearst was the one who finally brought Channel 9 out of the dark 
ages.  I remember in the mid 70s they used a sleeve from a Mercury 45 rpm 
record with their logo on it as the ID slide.
