60th Anniversary: The changing look of Channel 12
When Channel 12 first went on the air on July 1, 1953, the news looked very different than it does today. Reporters from existing news organizations like radio and newspapers were the first faces that greeted viewers on black and white TV. For example, Dick Cornish, father of KWCH anchor Roger Cornish, had been working at a Hutchinson radio station in the 1950's. He applied for a job at Channel 12 and was hired as a staff announcer.
