The first one is a Friday, 6/6/86 story, “CBS Revamping Schedule With Reruns At New Times” and also includes other “Around Television” items, about daytime programming changes at channel 11, Canadian imports on CBS late-night, a new investigative reporter at channel 11, and channel 13 being honored by TPS for it's Student Television Nework show. The other one is a Wednesday, 6/11/86 story, “Mathers Taking 'Beaver' Persona, Friends To WTBS.” There are three additions to the PBS gallery, all for channel 30 programs, aFriday, 6/20/86 ad for Generations of Violence, a Monday, 6/23/86 ad for the premiere of Words Worth, “Small Presses,” and a Wednesday, 6/25/86 ad for Symbols of an Early Age: Toledo's Early Public Art. There are also three additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery including a Monday, 6/2/86 ad, another one for The Blade Instantnews on CableSystem channel 11. The other two are for “free installation” offers for Showtime and The Movie Channel, a Monday, 6/23/86 ad (“Gremlins”) and a Monday, 6/30/86 ad (“Beverly Hills Cop”).
