February 10, 2011: You'll Find the Best on CBS

Today I added 20 more ads from June and July 1969, many of them reflecting the affiliation line-up changes that took effect on June 15th, 1969 with all ABC shows now on channel 24, all NBC shows on channel 13 and all CBS shows on channel 11. Also changing is the name of the 6 & 11 pm news on WSPD-TV. Deadline is now The Venner-Ward Report.
