There have been some minor programming purchases, notably The Streets of San Francisco for late afternoon use, and some major defections. News anchor Mary Jo West left for CBS in New York a month ago, while Bob Davies ends his career at the station today and will start work Monday at American Cable. Davies used to be a vice president at Channel 10, but when Gulf took over all titles were removed, including the vice president's tag hung on news anchor Bill Close. News director Bill Miller is the man calling the shots. The biggest change has been off-camera. Under the previous ownership of Tom Chauticey, Channel 10 fell behind other stations in the market on the technical end and its newscasts appeared stodgy when compared to electronic wizardry being demonstrated by competitors. The recent arrival of a new "switcher," which will be put into use within two weeks, should help bring the station's presentation up to the level of competitors. A switcher is a device that controls transitions and effects and is capable of flipping a picture around, making it smaller or bigger and positioning the picture on the screen. Overall, cosmetic upgrading in the last three months has been gradual: forecaster Joe Dougherty received some new equipment enabling him to better show storm patterns; noon and 6 p.m. co-anchor Elyse Wolfman was advised on makeup and hairstyling, improving her appearance immeasurably. However, on Monday, KTSP-TV will unveil a new news set as well as a new name for its news programs Newscenter 10. The station has been utilizing the name TV 10 News, a stopgap title forced by the dropping of the KOOL News 10 designation when the K00L-TV call letters fell by the wayside. The Newscenter name is one of a Bud Wilkinson Television Radio handful, along with Action News and Eyewitness News, that are commonly used by stations around the nation. Miller said it was chosen because it contained elements of the long-used KOOL News 10 name, "news" and "10." The new set, tan and brown with two pop-up monitors, was designed by a company in San Diego and replaces the two separate sets (newsroom and studio) that the station has used. This set adjoins the newsroom. A consultant from Los Angeles helped in lighting. Total cost of the project is $50,000-plus, a pittance compared to the $1 million the station has spent so far in technical improvements. The choice of earth tones the set is bounded by burnt orange walls was designed to set it off from the other local stations' news sets, especially the stark white anchor desk at KPNX-TV (Channel 12). "It's warmer than anybody's set," Miller said. Whether the technical changes will appreciably alter the station's news ratings won't be known until next year. The impact of smoother productions, the result of improved equipment, and the appeal of gimmickry is not recorded in the ratings. "I don't think you can measure that. I think it still depends on who you have on the air," Miller said. Viewers may subcon-ciously detect a difference. "I think that's probably true," he added. Meanwhile, Miller announced that former KARZ radio talk-show host Bob Riedy has been hired to report from On the Arizona Road, a feature handled by Bill Leverton prior to his jump to Channel 12.

Technology puts squeeze on flat-panel TV screens Christian Science Monitor Television sets small enough to fit in the palm of a hand or long and flat enough to hang on a wall like a painting are part of a new wave of flat-panel display technologies. Some word processors and computers already use flat panels. But technology needed to mass-produce wall screens is still a few years away. Meanwhile, many consumers can see some of the new display technologies in an array of pocket-sized TV sets. The Sony Watchman, a black-and-white TV with a 2-inch diagonal screen, hit the market first It's about the size of a walkie-talkie. Next year, Sinclair Research Ltd. of England is expected to unveil a TV set the size of a sardine can and priced as low as $100. Casio Computer Co. of Japan is planning to sell a tiny flat-screen TV for about $200 next spring. The first TV sets were made with screens as small as 2 inches. But the new tiny TVs are the first to use flat screens. Technicians are studying at least a dozen flat-panel technologies that promise both sharper pictures and versatility. The aim is to create large, flat wall screens capable of bringing cinemalike entertainment into the home, and thin panels that can operate off small power sources, such as penlight or watch batteries. Thin-panel designers have found it difficult to reduce the distance between the electron gun, which shoots a picture-painting electron beam from the back of the tube, and the phosphor screen in front. In the Watchman, Sony has mounted the electron gun below the screen. It fires electrons in at an angle. Sony now is attempting to adapt its technology for use in a flat, wall-mounted TV and in a pocket-size color TV set I m Singles APPLIANCE PARTS WISHER, DRYER, DISHWASHER, STOVE, REFRIG., ETC.
