May 9, 2013: Jock of All Trades

 

I added thirteen more ads today, all from May 1984 plus four Random Pages gallery additions, all for The Blade's 5/6/84 Toledo Magazine story, “The Anchorwomen,” about WTOL's Jill Olmsted, WTVG's Jeannine Lauber, and WDHO's Diane Larson. I would have posted the entire story but parts of it were missing. First is a Friday, 5/4/84 ad promoting the upcoming story. Next is the cover of all three women with a photo by Herral Long. The other two are photos too, one by Jack Ackerman of Jeannine Lauber and a Lee Merkle photo of Diane Larson and her boyfriend, Dan Bettison. I almost named today's post “The Anchorwomen” but I decided I liked “Jock of all Trades” more. There's one addition to the Channel 11 gallery, a Wednesday, 5/2/84 ad for The CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, syndicated shows Family Feud (Richard Dawson) and Three's Company, CBS prime-time shows, One Day at a Time, “Meaning of Life” and “Being There” on The CBS Wednesday Night Movies, plus Toledo Eleven News at 11:00 and CBS late night shows, Police Story and the movie, “Never Con a Killer.” There are two additions to the Channel 11 News gallery, both with Orris Tabner, Jeff Heitz, Jill Olmsted and Orris Tabner, a Tuesday, 5/1/84 ad and a Wednesday, 5/9/84 ad. There are two more Toledo Eleven News ads in the News/Special Reports Ads gallery, a Monday, 5/7/84 ad for a Rebecca Hanshaw report, “Instant Millionaire” and a Tuesday, 5/8/84 ad for their Ohio Primary election coverage. There's one more addition to that gallery for 13 Strong News, a Tuesday, 5/8/84 ad for their “Decision 84” election coverage (Jerry Anderson, Jeannine Lauber, Tom Waniewski, Brenda Hines, Mike Mota, Jim Harpen). There's also one addition to the Channel 13 News gallery, a Friday, 5/4/84 ad for their “Jock of All Trades,” John Gillespie. There are four additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, two for The Disney Channel, a Sunday, 5/6/84 full-page ad and a Friday, 5/11/84 ad. There are also two Sunday, 5/6/84 TV Tab ads, the first one for Braves Baseball on WTBS and the other one for Asthma and Allergies Update '84 on Lifetime. There's also one addition to the CableSystem Channel 5 gallery, a Thursday, 5/4/84 ad for a Rochester Red Wings vs. Toledo Mud Hens game. The last ad today is an addition to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Friday, 5/4/84 ad for Hasty's Sohio. More May and June 1984 ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
