September 23, 2009: 11=CBS, 13=NBC, 24=ABC

You'll find 20 additions today, all from June 1969. As of June 15, 1969 Toledo stations finally get aligned with one network each. All CBS shows are now seen on 11, all NBC shows are now seen on 13 and all ABC shows are now seen on 24. Before this 11 showed CBS and NBC shows, 13 showed ABC and NBC shows and 24 showed shows from all three neworks. Two of the ads reflect this change. There's an ad for The FBI on the channel 24 page reflecting the change in stations and one on the channel 11 News page for The CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite (which replaced The Huntley-Brinkley Report on channel 11). There's also an ad for Something Special on the 24 page and on the channel 11 page there's one for "early risers" in Michigan who could watch prime-time shows an hour earlier on channel 11 (because Michigan was still on standard time and the Michigan stations showed the prime-time shows at their regular times). The channel 2 page has another one for Truth or Consequences, one for The Mike Douglas Show with Leslie Uggams, one for The Merv Griffin Show with Tom Smothers and one for a Campus Crusade special with Pat Boone. The channel 4 page has one for a special, The Distant Drummer: Bridge from No Place, one for Here Come the Stars (honoring Don Rickles) and one for Allen Ludden's Gallery with Andy Griffith. There's also one on the channel 4 news page (Stay Close to the news...). The channel 7 page has four more movie ads for "Fire Down Below," "Moby Dick," "The Sound and the Fury" and one for Wedding Week on Rita Bell's Prize Movie which featured the movies, "It Had to be You," "Member of the Wedding," "Seven Sweethearts," "Double Wedding" and "Father of the Bride." There's an ad  on the channel 9 page for four Sunday movies ("Operation Pacific," "No Time for Sergeants," "For Love or Money" and "Oliver Twist"). There's also one for live coverage of The International Freedom Festival. And finally, on the Other Vintage Ads page is one for "The Maltese Bippy" with Dan Rowan and Dick Martin. More from the summer of 1969 are on the way...
