  • While over at www.capecentralhigh.com an ex-Missourian photographer's blog features the 58th birthdate of KFVS TV. Is the shared date a coincidence or another example of the Naeter-Hirsch rivalry?

  • Thanks for the plug. The story you mentioned is at


    About the only light I can shed is that it was The Missourian's quaint style when I was there in the 60s to always refer to KFVS as "a local radio station" or a "local television station" instead of giving the call letters.

    All publishers have their quirks. I had one who dictated, "I don't want to see Joe Smith's name in the paper unless he's indicted for something."

  • See the page 8 birthday editorial from the 3 Oct 1957 Missourian for an explanation of the papers' success.
