Tv-58 premieres Jackpot Bingo, with Jim Finnerty and Tobi Knight, on ten/20/86.
I remember in my area, WSAZ? had a similar program called All-American Bingo which aired from September 29, 1986 to January 2, 1987.

At the? end of this is what’s probably the only “58 After News Update” online too- I remember during their first few weeks on the air, once seeing it start with the intro then going on-air live you heard a crash as all the lights went out and they went to a commercial! Wish I’d gotten that on tape!
That “We look great on? 58″ ID at the beginning seems to be the only existing one online (at least until I can dig through the rest of my tapes)- but why isn’t this in stereo?
@recto89 Yup. You’ll find a lot of syndicated design packages for indies and even bigger stations in the mid-late 1980s. WTMJ, KIII, WSYM, and WBAY all used one general design package, for example.
Was there a bingo? fad in 1986-87? KTVK had a Jackpot Bingo that ended at the start of 1987. It’s somewhere around here on YT.
KSCH TV Channel 58 signed on the air on April 13, 1986. The original owner was Schuyler Broadcasting. Soon after signing on the air, it was sold to Pegusus Broadcasting which I think was based out of Puerto Rico. And I might be wrong, but i think Kelly Broadcasting, that owned KCRA, bought KSCH in 1995? (changing call letters to KQCA) before selling both to Hearst-Argyle in 1999. Maybe KLXT77 will know?
@eyeh8nbc just sad… we could see it coming in the 80′s some of us even in the tale end of the seventies could see our world changing forever… scrambling channels on the old cband satelites was the start of? corporate control over tv entertainment…
@lockenjr This was a relatively young station, having just gone on the air in April 1986. They had a LOT of technical problems their first months on the air. I think the station changed owners? several times before it wound up with Hearst-Argyle which also took over channel 3 and ruined both of them.
They picked up the UPN network when it started, then switched to WB after Viacom bought channel 31 and moved UPN there. After WB died they picked up MyNetwork, if that even counts.
Whatever happened to Jim Finerty? He was on channel 8 in Cleveland in the 70s, moved to channel 3 in Sacramento in the 80s and was on channel 58 its first years on the air, and seems to have dropped off the face of the earth after that. He was on the 1-hour special when this? station went on the air for the first time, which I have on tape somewhere but haven’t been able to find!
I used to talk to Tobi Knight when she hosted the? overnight talk show on KGNR. Nice clip!
