“Today FOX News Channel and FOX & Friends co-host Steve Doocy commemorated News Corporation’s takeover of the iconic Panasonic Astrovision screen at New York City’s One Times Square by ‘squashing’ the NBC peacock,” the network said in a press release today. “On Oct. 1, 2006, News Corporation (parent company of FOX News Channel) took over the Astrovision screen’s content from NBC, who had long-held the rights to the screen’s programming. This morning marked FOX News Channel’s first live broadcast of FOX & Friends on the Times Square screen.”
