Default Cincinnati's WKRC Channel 12 Shares its History Online

WKRC Vault

Look who's in the new WKRC-TV Video Vault: The Beatles, Nick Clooney, Dick Clark, Ira Joe Fisher, Rod Serling, Bob Shreve and many more.

To celebrate its 60th anniversary (coming Friday), Channel 12 has posted old film, videos and photos in the WKRC-TV Video Vault, a new Web page at www.Local12.com.

A few of these images might appear in Channel 12 birthday promotions or news stories this month, but the station doesn't plan to air a one-hour special (as it did 10 and 20 years ago), says Les Vann, general manager.

Treasures in the vault include:

Clark flubbing his lines recording a black-and-white promotion for "American Bandstand," after Channel 12 switched from CBS to ABC in 1961. (Channels 12 and 9 traded networks again in 1996).

Fisher, the 1980s weatherman and variety show host, bidding farewell to viewers by writing backward from behind a clear plastic pane, which made him so popular with viewers.

The opening four minutes of "The Storm," a 1951-52 live drama series written and produced here by Serling before he created the Emmy-winning "The Twilight Zone" in 1959. It's the oldest known video from the station, which signed on April 3, 1949, as Channel 11.

Mostly silent film of the Beatles at Crosley Field infield in 1966 concert, and a brief clip of their 1964 Cincinnati Gardens concert.

Promotional clips for Shreve's "Past Prime Playhouse" all-night movies and Clooney's newscasts in the 1970s and '80s.

Glenn "Skipper" Ryle's blooper doing a live commercial.

But visitors won't see any clips - yet - of the "Skipper Ryle" children's show or Clooney's 1970s daytime variety show.

"This is very much a work in progress," explains Web master Jarrod Becker.

Since August, promotion producer Rich Schudlos has explored boxes of old tapes at the Mount Auburn station in his spare time.

"This project didn't start out to be the total history of the station. It was like going through boxes of stuff in your garage you didn't know you had," says Schudlos, who produces Gary Sullivan's "HomeWoRx" show (11:30 a.m. today, Channel 12).

Becker has put 20 black-and-white photos of old shows and personalities on the Web, although most are not named. He plans to add a message board so viewers can help identify the photos.

"This is just a start. It's not the end," Schudlos promises
