Thanks a million! What no-one posted a comment! I will be delighted to be the first then. Am just now listening to a Shepard after Dwight Weise's weather forecast of puffy clouds over Times Square! The rest of this has to be priceless.
Thanks to the person who posted all this.There will be more afilliates, and more newscasts, but that familar sound is now retired. That's the latest news from ABC Radio. The Split. The 4 new networks started out with approximately affiliated stations.
According to the January 1, of Broadcasting Magazine For example, the Contemporary Network will carry five-minute newscasts at five minutes before the hour and will bolster it's coverage with either sports or American Contemporary Reportsthree and a half minutes in length and dealing with "What's in" on the world scene.
ABC News Update
The Entertainment Network will carry five-minute newscast, a minute segment by Paul Harvey and 50 minutes of the Breakfast Club. The Information Network will provide the heaviest diet of news, supplying blocks of minute, five-minute, and three-an-a-half-minutes of news and sports each day. Beaudin's belief that conventional networks faced the problems of clearance because there was more product available than was desired by stations. This in turn, led to sales problems. Beaudin reasoned that a line-up of similar stations could provide advertisers with 'a national target audience.
Also gone was the hour long NewsScope at PM. The FCC. The change to 4 separate news networks required approval from the FCC. The FCC said "The proposal merits encouragement as a new and imaginative approach" to radio networking. ABC was required to submit a comprehensive report on the proposal every six months. Overlapping Problems.
The change to 4 separate news networks did cause some problems. With the minute Breakfast Club being fed to the Entertainment Network at EST except for the in western states where ABC allowed delayed broadcasts to avoid being on in drive-time five or ten minute of program overlaps occurred in some markets where the network had multiple affiliates. A rule waiver had to be granted or a violation of the chain broadcasting rule would have occurred. The rule's primary purpose was to bar NBC from continuing to operate two full-fledged networks, the Red and the Blue.
Reaction from affiliates. According to the January 15, issue of Broadcasting Magazine, after two weeks of on-air operations of the new radio feeds, reactions ranged from 'very pleased' to 'negative'. One long term ABC affiliate - now prevented from using the words "ABC Radio" simply because such a network no longer exists - said that he found the lack of exclusivity acute. What does American Entertainment of American Information mean to our listeners?
We were led to believe there would be stronger, more complete news, but this apparently isn't so. I have a feeling there's been a degradation in quality. Special thanks to Bob Gibson for providing the articles from Broadcasting Magazine used for this section of the websiteTechnologically no longer needed.
CBS News Radio Goes Chirpless
RIP chirp! For decades, local stations relied on the networks to send various tones in order to trigger various elements. The chirp is an automation start pulse. It can be used by stations to switch equipment, but it actually was used in the network control room to start cartridge machines. The producer of the newscast who sits in the studio alongside of the newscaster had a toggle switch on the table to sound the chirp.
The chirp before the bong might start the jingle. The chirp before the ads starts the ads. They had a bank of three sets of four cart machines for the ads, one machine for each of four segments of the country.
If there were split-ads that were heard in only part of the country there might be different ads in the machines on the same bank. If the ad was nationwide there was an identical cartridge in each of the four machines. The bongs were automatically sounded by a clock, but the chirps were manually hit. Another radio tech fixture gone off to wherever dead tech goes to die. Signals like that, which were on all the networks in some form, were also used to alert stations about upcoming news bulletins.
The problem was that stations that received their net feed via landline from a receiver located somewhere else other than their studio would be out of luck. Many stations at the time had their 6 foot or bigger dishes with satellite receivers at their transmitter sites.
Mutual ultimately quieted the bee-doops by modifying the square-wave signal generators which originally came from similar equipment used in the two-way radio industry to send barely audible, but easily detected, sine-wave signals instead. I suspect similar difficulties with distant landline-connected downlinks also delayed CBS and possibly other nets from eliminating such in-band signals for many years.
How big is a CBS downlink dish today? How can they eliminate something like this without seriously affecting us radio people? Listen to an old aircheck with a phone conversation or an interview done over the phone to relive the exciting days of radio. Remember when you called some chick for a date using the radio station telephone, and she would say. I was a big fan of the Mystery Theater in the s, and dialed around late at night to hear numerous CBS Radio affiliates carrying Mystery Theater at various times.
This second version fo the NetALERT system had numerous combinations of multi-frequency chirps, so any specific function could be signaled with ONE unique chirp, rather than a sequence of two to nine uniform bleeps of course a single bleep was the most common one in the NetALERT system. ABC Radio had a signaling system which began in Jan. Will miss the chirp. It made the broadcasts unique.
