The Statlers were honored for best comedy act, best vocal group, best single for "Elizabeth" and No. 1 television special, "Another Evening with the Statler Brothers Heroes, Legends and AP loserphoto Friends."

Winners were chosen by subscribers to Music City News, a monthly country music publication in Nashville. Networks plan specials to commemorate D-Day By Tom Jory Associated Press Contrary to popular belief, says Gary Paul Gates in "Air Time." a history of CBS News, Edward R, CATV won't offer Sportsvue By Leader-Telegram staff Wisconsin CATV won't offer the Sportsvue pay channel to local subscribers, at least for now. "We don't have enough interest to warrant the expense" of adding Sportsvue, Jan George, CATV general manager, said today. She said only 167 people responded favorably to a recent telephone and newspaper survey, asking if they would be willing to pay an extra $8 per month for the channel. "We couldn't get much of a response," George said. "So we decided we'd just watch and see how that channel does in other (cable TV) systems . . . We'll continue to take names of people who are interested and see what happens." Wisconsin CATV would have to invest in new equipment to receive Sportsvue's signal. The channel, which began transmitting in the eastern Wiscon sin in April, offers live Milwaukee Brewers and Bucks, University of Wisconsin, Marquette University, National Hockey League and National Basketball Association games. "We don't know if that channel is going to make it," George said. "They have to have a lot of subscribers in the state to cover their costs." "So far it hasn't been very successful in some other systems in the eastern part of the state," she said, except for the Milwaukee area. Group W Cable in La Crosse is considering carrying the channel, a company spokeswoman said today. "As far as I know it's still in the discussion stage," she added. Wisconsin CATV will offer its first "pay-per-view" service, a boxing match between Roberto Duran and Thomas Hearns, June IS. Subscribers can pay an additional fee to see the fight, which will be coded into a blank channel on their television converters. Murrow did not invent broadcast journalism : "His most impressive contribution was to shift the emphasis away from the static world of studio newscasts to the 'beat' reporter on the scene," Gates maintains. "Murrow and his 'boys' covered the news themselves." Thus it was that six of Murrow's battle-seasoned "boys" were dispatched to the coast of France to report on the Allied invasion June 6, 1944. Rarely if ever before in broadcast journalism had such extensive coverage of a single event been attempted. And toward the end of that day, Charles Colling wood, one of the six, described this scene for anxious listeners across the Atlantic: "It's late in the afternoon, the sun is going down, the sea is choppy and the beach is lined with men and materiel and guns, trucks, vehicles of all kinds. On either side of us there are pillars of smoke perhaps a mile, two miles away, which are rising from enemy shelling, and further back, we can see the smoke and results of our own shelling." Collingwood, Richard C. Hottelet, who followed the invasion from a bomber overhead, and Bill Shadel, who was aboard the U.S. Navy cruiser Tuscaloosa, were reunited recently in a studio here to recall their participation in the transcendent story for "D-Day Plus 40 Years," an anniversary program to be broadcast Wednesday on the CBS Radio Network. The hour-long special is one of several planned by the three networks, for radio and television, to commemorate the assault on the beaches of Normandy that ultimately led to the liberation of Western Europe. All three plan live coverage of anniversary ceremonies from Normandy on Wednesday morning. A special, hour-long edition of ABC's "Nightline" Wednesday night may be the most innovative of the lot: using actual film of the invasion, "Nightline". will reconstruct events of that day. Sam Donaldson will report from the White House on President Roosevelt's activities, and John McWethy will cover the invasion from the War Department, forerunner of the Pentagon. Robert Trout in London, Pierre Salinger in Normandy and Greg Dobbs in Berlin will provide on-the-scene reports. Also scheduled: "D-Day and Eisenhower," at 7 tonight on CBS television, is a newly edited, hour-long version of the acclaimed CBS documentary, "D-Day Plus 20 Years," which was broadcast June S, 1964. Walter Cronkite, the former CBS "Evening News" anchorman who covered the invasion as a print reporter, interviews former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was the supreme commander of Allied forces, at Soutbwick House in Portsmouth, England, where the invasion was planned, and along the beaches where the invading forces landed. "D-Day Plus 40 Years," Wednesday evening on NBC television, will include highlights of the day's commemorative events, as well as taped reports from the English towns where Allied troops were billeted during the buildup to the invasion. The hour-long program will include interviews with both Allied and German participants in the attack and resistance. "D-Dy." Wednesday on NBC radio, will feature actual reports from London, New York and Washington broadcast by the network on the day of the invasion, as well as segments of NBC's day-long coverage of the assualt from Normandy.
