WCCO-TV’s 6pm Report from November 28, 1979 with Anchors Dave Moore and Pat Miles, Bud Kraehling’s weather and Ralph Jon Fritz’s Sports. Don Shelby reports on the Piper kidnapping trial, stories on car theft, and UFOs are part of this somewhat typical November day in the Twin Cities.
Minneapolis police moving from the squad cars to foot
High interest rates
Bud Wilkenson fired
Also as happens on live TV some video technical difficulties on the WCCO set at 10:08 – magic never intended to be seen again.
