New KQV, Some TV News
Plus Notes and Comments
Pittsburgh Post Gazette, January 10, 1958
   The Monday morning "new KQV" lineup is as follows: Chuck Dougherty, an import from Florida, will handle the wake-up session from 6 to 9. Chuck uses "voices" as "assistants" on his show. "Breakfast Club" moves in from 9 to 10, with ABC's Herb Oscar Anderson following until 11. DeBecco takes over from 11 to 1. National shows, all music, fill until 3, and another KQV newcomer, Sam Holman, will handle the deejay chores from then until 6:30 p.m. Sam comes here from KOLI, Omaha, Nebraska.

   John Daly's fine newscast comes in from 6:30 to 6:40, with a follow-up by Paul Harvey. Lowell Thomas fills the next 15 minutes, and Edward Morgan's interesting AFL-CIO commentary takes the station to 7:15: Merv Griffin's musical stanza follows until 9 when local deejay Dave Scott takes over until sign-off at 12:30 a.m. It will, as predicted here, be a "Top 40" tune operation.

   A half hour of "Amos 'n' Andy" will interrupt Scott's nightly show at 10. News will be broadcast at five minutes before the hour, with headlines at 25 minutes past the hour. As previously reported here, Jim Westover, Ken Hildebrand and Alan Boal will handle the news. Longtime announcer Jim Thompson changes departments to become an account executive on the 1410 kc spot.

   Oh yes, in answer to another telegram, CBS-Radio having now lost their KQV outlet here, is "woring on the problem."
