This personal narrative is co-authored by two of the best-known names in American UHF television broadcast management: Kathryn Kitty Broman Putnam and William Lowell Bill Putnam. During the first two decades of Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) television, when the established VHF (Very-High Frequency) stations dominated the TV marketplace, the Putnams built and operated three successful UHF outlets: WWLP-TV in Springfield, Massachusetts; WKEF-TV in Dayton, Ohio; and KSTU-TV in Salt Lake City, Utah. Kitty and Bill recall how they labored for survival during the dozen lean years between 1952 and 1964, and the events along their way to leadership in the world of advertiser-supported analog television. Included are several original poems written by Bill, and tantalizing recipes created for Kitty's long-running local cooking show.

"Sidney Pike's story is the most thorough chronicle that exists. As he met with media and government leaders around the world, trying to sell CNN programming, he faced both the forces that stimulated the changes and those that offered resistance to them. Sidney Pike was a pioneer and evangelist for the global television channels and the news services that are taken for granted today. This should be read by all students of telecommunication and by anyone interested in the role the media played in globalization and democratization."--Jacket.
