In the clip below (from YouTube user TexasTV), Randy Moore explains the reason behind the switch and how it would play out.
The switch was completed in early December 1995 and, as Moore predicted, WEVV did end up going with CBS. And, as you know, Fox ended up back there as well not quite two years ago. WTVW, after being independent for 18 months, became Evansville's CW affiliate at the end of January.
TUESDAY TIME MACHINE is a new JDTVB feature that will use videos from YouTube to showcase Tri-State TV history. Let me know what you think about it!
