Communications Corp. Remember this well. The license to broadcast has changed hands twice and the call letters have been changed once. Any similarity to the original station doesnt exist. Originally, the Federal Communications Commission awarded the license to operate a television station on channel 19 to James Lang, owner of radio station WNOP in Newport. The license then was acquired by Toledo warehousemen Daniel H. Overmyer and was scheduled to be a part of the Overmyer network. Other stations in major markets were Involved but the expense of broadcasting proved too costly for the Overmyer Interests. Enter U. S. Communications Corp., subsidiary of American Viscose Corp. TJ.

She has a featured role In the film version of "Hello, Dolly!", and because of that the first few of the weekly one - hour "That's Life" shows will be taped in Hollywood. When she is through with the film, Miss Peaker and the video company will come to New York to do the series. stations in addition to an option to buy the remaining 20 from the Overmyer interests. Then, In May the FCC approved new call letters and WSCO-TV became WXIX-TV. XIX, naturally is 19 In Roman. Hence a new name, new owners, new image.

Regular season away games or the Bengals will also be carried by WLWT. HOLLYWOOD OB Situation comedy, out of style and out of favor with network television program makers for the past few seasons, is making a comeback next season. There are seven new series of the genre on the schedules of the three networks. And a lucky swing of the programming cycle returns them at a time when flarce physical action and gunplay is, if not taboo, at least radically modified. Television series are usually under construction for one or two years before the public gets its first look at a show, so most of these were on the drawing boards long: before the public and-the networks began worrying about shoot 'em ups and their suspected effects on tender or disturbed minds. On the September docket are CBS' "Doris Day Show," the popular film star's first excursion into television. She plays a former band singer, a widow with two children, adjusting to rural life. There is also NBC's "Julia," with Diahann Carroll playing a widowed registered nurse with child. Other nonviolent comedies include CBS "Blondle," based on a comic strip; ABC's "Ugliest Girl in Town;" NBC's Fantasy. "The Ghost and Mrs. Mulr;" CBS' "The Good Guys," and ABC's hour-long "Here Come the Brides," a period piece set in the Northwest lumberjack country. Second most popular category for new shows is action, mostly police or private eye action. The five shows include NBC's "The Outsider," in the mood of those old Raymond Chandler private eye books; ABC's "Mod Squad" and CBS's "Hawaii Five," both working the police beat; NBC's Adam 12," which will handle a pair of squad car cops in the manner, of "Dragnet" and NBC's major effort, the 90-minute "Name of the Game." Two new variety shows will be added to the growing list NBC's "Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show" and the offbeat "That's Life" on ABC which will attempt a weekly book musical built around a cast of regular performers playing continuing characters. There will also be two new Westerns, CBS' "Lancer," and ABC's "Outcasts." ABC will replace a science fiction series, "Voyage to the Botto of the Sea" with another, "The Land of Giants," the only new entry in that category. And it will also add one semi-game program, "The Don Rlckles Show," in which the em-phls in comedy rather than eneuprnanship. ABC also has th j sole anthology series of the season, "Journey to the Unknown," with different plot and performers weekly. 12 noon, 5, 2, 50-50 CLUB (Color), Karen Marrow, currently appearing in "Can-Can" in Dayton.
