Tucson’s KVOA Celebrates 60th Anniversary

Tucson NBC affiliate KVOA is marks 60 years on the air this week.

In an interview with KVOA, Frank Barreca, the station’s first news director and anchor, recalled the bare bones station when it first went on the air in 1953.

“We made a crash course in studying the film industry, learning about lights and how the lights should be installed in the studio that was being built,” Barecca said (video after the jump). “…I remember the typewriters were on crates and I think we had a couple of folding chairs.”
