I heard a story about Victor from a newswriter at channel 4 back around 1970.

Best had been admonished by management for not smiling more during the
news. That same evening he comes on with a broad smile and announces
many children had been killed when a commuter train hit a schoolbus
(this would be in the 50's) Shortly afterwards Arch was doing the news
again followed by Jim Jensen.

Funny I have far more memories of channel 4 than 7. I dimly recall an
older gentleman who did a kids show on WNAC in the afternoon but I
recall little. For some reason the name Frank Bucannon (sic) comes to

News I dimly recall Roy Leonard and Dave Rodman and my mother watching
Louise Morgan.

WNAC did a horrible job locally in the 50's
