I added 20 ads today from November and December 1983 and January and February 1984. There are three additions to the News/Special Reports page from WTOL. There are ads for reports by Rebecca Hanshaw, Elizabeth McGuire and John Culliton. There's also another ad for the team of Jeff Heitz, Jill Olmsted, Charles Umpenhour and Orris Tabner on the channel 11 news page. You'll also find an ad on the channel 24 news page for their team of Diane Larson, Dave Carlson and Jim Tichy. Of course, Diane would later move to channel 13 where she's still anchoring today. On the WTOL page you'll find an ad for their late afternoon line-up of The Love Boat, WKRP in Cincinnati and The People's Court. This of course was the end of channel 11's movies at 4:00. On the WDHO page are ads for Walt Disney World's Very Merry Christmas Parade and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Their are two ads for competing shows on Wednesday, November 23, 1983. One is on the ABC page for Dynasty and Hotel and the other is on the CBS page for their Wednesday Night Movies presentation of "Tarzan the Ape Man" with Bo Derek. Yes, sex sells. Also on the ABC page is an ad for their Monday Night Movie presentation of the Angie Dickinson movie, "Jealousy." There are also more ads on the CBS page for Airwolf and Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer. There are also two more ads on the NBC page for the premiere of Night Court and for the Hill Street Blues episode 'Grace Under Fire' which addressed the death of Michael Conrad (Phil Esterhaus). And finally on the Other Vintage Ads page are four more. There are two Montgomery Ward ads for Polaroid cameras and film and Uniden cordless phones and there's also a Michelob ad. The other one has Farrah Fawcett in an American Cancer Society ad.
