The first one is a Thursday, 12/2/82 story, “Blade Cablenews To Add Business-Sports Channel.” Next are two by Tom Gearhart, the first one a Friday, 12/3/82 story, “Lauber To Join Anderson As Channel 13 Co-Anchor” and also includes other items, about Bill Spencer celebrating 20 years as Uncle Ben, WGTE-TV's December fund-raising campaign, and WBGU-TV's “Quiet Campaign.” The other one is a Tuesday, 12/21/82 story, “CableSystem Adding Health Network, Dropping Ch. 43” and also includes other items, about WDHO-TV's Paul Rae and Rick Benjamin, BGSU Basketball on WCWA, B. Dalton Bookstores donating to channel 30, and the return of UT's telecourses. There's one addition to the Channel 11 gallery, a Saturday, 12/4/82 ad for a Blue Cross-Blue Shield special, Why Your Kids are on Drugs. There are six additions to the PBS gallery for channel 30's December fund-raising campaign. First is a Thursday, 12/2/82 ad for Wild America, “The Wolf and the Whitetail,” followed by a Saturday, 12/4/82 ad for the movie, “A Man Called Peter” (Richard Todd). There are two Sunday, 12/5/82 ads, the first one for Gold from the Deep, North to the Top of the World, and the movie, “The Man Who Skied Down Everest.” The second ad is for Nature, “The Discovery of Animal Behavior: In Praise of God.” There's also a Friday, 12/10/82 ad for The Last Nazi, and a Saturday, 12/26/82 ad for the movie, “The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit” (Gregory Peck, Jennifer Jones). There's one addition to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Friday, 12/3/82 ad for The Blade Cablenews channels (11B & 13A), now adding financial and sports news. The last ad today is an addition to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Sunday, 12/26/82 ad for Viewfax, a service of The Blade, available to TRS-80 computer owners.
