Channel 4 at the Fair, 1960

The folks over at Buffalo Broadcasting shared this great photo with us on our show’s Facebook page. If you look close enough, you can see the huge cameras that once were the norm for television news.

This ad is from 1960 when Channel 4, then WBEN-TV, broadcast LIVE from the Erie County Fair – can you imagine using all that old equipment and figuring out how to make a remote show work? Props to them, it’s hard enough with today’s technology.

Remember, Winging It! Buffalo Style will be broadcasting LIVE from the 175th Erie County Fair, Monday August 11th and Tuesday August 12th. REMINDER – we will be on Channel 4 that day at 3PM, not the CW23. Be sure to tune in for all the fair fun!
