JUST FOR THE FAMILY FUN OF IT… WATCH KREM-2
ABC-TV CHANNEL 2
This is a KREM-2 season, as you’ll start seeing Monday night. The fun starts every week day at five o’clock, and it’s all wholesome and a family wide. Following Cap’n Cy with Popeye and Mr. Magoo (who is immune to the charm of the nearsighted Magoo?), you watch the most informative half-hour in television: the award-winning “Newsbeat” with Dick Hoover, the “Weather Sketch” show with Ray Ramsey, and the new ABC Network News coverage, “Evening Report” with John Cameron Swayze and the entire network news facilities, including on-location direct reports from wherever the news is happening. Keep an eye on KREM-2 this season. It’s worth watching—morning, news and night.
Intensive coverage of local news with Dick Hoover. The Inland Empire relies on this award-winning news program (sponsored by S&E Bank) for fast, accurate reporting. And the breeziness of “Hayhead” Ray Ramsey on “Weather Sketch” cannot conceal his scientific grasp of weather. Watch it! It’s on KREM-2.
Here’s the entire ABC Network News facility covering national and world events. Anchor man is John Cameron Swayze. This new show brings on-location reports from staffers wherever the news is happening. It rounds out the most informative half-hour in television daily.
I SEARCH FOR ADVENTURE
Jack Douglas finds adventure every week in the far corners of the globe and shares it with you. Fascinating personal interviews with the guests. A great true-life series on KREM-2.
