I TELEVISION dn (bimunamismt oft (public QnhhsidJ: TO THE PEOPLE OF NORTHEASTERN WISCONSIN: THE official order ending the "freeze" on television expansion which was issued last week by the Federal Communications Commission has brought this section of the state one step closer to the new miracle called television. Two V. H. F. (very high frequency) channels, each having an efficient telecasting radius of fifty miles from its transmitter, have been assigned to this area. This decision was of particular interest to a group of seventeen individuals. On December 27, 1951, these seventeen, after months of study, agreed that they would join forces in an effort to bring television to this area at the earliest possible date and in a manner dedicated to the greatest possible public welfare. Today the seventeen, encouraged by the action of the Federal Communications Commission, have formalized their organization by filing with the Secretary of State at Madison, Articles of Incorporation whereby the Valley Telecasting Company will come into legal existence. Each of the seventeen individuals who has helped to form this company has long been active in the civic, charitable and religious life of his respective community. Each one has a record of public service earned through earnest participation in various community-wide projects, and many have gained general recognition as civic leaders because of their efforts. All have been engaged in the business, industrial and professional life of this area, and all but one resides in the Fox River Valley. No individual owns more than a fourteen 114) per cent share of the Valley Telecasting Company and none of them are financially interested in any other company engaged in the circulation of mass public information. As soon as possible the Valley Telecasting Company will apply to the Federal Communications Commission for a permit to construct and operate a television station on Channel Six, there being at present no other applications on file from this area for that channel. If our application is granted, construction of a transmitter will begin promptly on a site which we have already acquired about eight miles southeast of the city of De Pere. Our location will enable us to present our programs clearly to Oshkosh on the south, beyond Shawano on the west, to the shores of Lake Michigan on the east, and the vicinity of Marinette and most of the Door County peninsula on the north. We have taken this step with a full realization of the great responsibility to the people of this area which the operation of television entails. We expecj, if our application is granted, to make our station a profitable venture, but we pledge that it will be dedicated to the growth, progress and general welfare of the communities within its reach. As men who have attempted according to our talents and energies to serve the community in which we live, we look forward to the possibility of again performing a public, service. OSCAR O.
