Denver’s KUSA Celebrates 60 Years

This Friday, KUSA in Denver will celebrate its 60th anniversary.

The station, which began as both a CBS and an ABC affiliate with the call letters KBTV, kicked off the celebration Sunday night taking viewers back to 1950′s Denver and giving them a small taste of what watching TV was like back then.  You can watch the video of the story after the jump.

According to the story, The Rocky Mountain News encouraged viewers at the time to hold TV viewing parties but to protect themselves with greenery, “they also warned you that there were little rays coming out of the television screen that could zap you.  And the best thing to do about that was to put some plants on the TV or near  it to soak up these potentially deadly TV rays.”

The station has a web page devoted to the event.  Click here to view.  The Denver Post also has an article about the station’s celebration and history.  Click here to see.  Watch the videos inside.
