“The service will include six different announcers, and music will move from cheerful pops in the early morning, through pop standards (orchestra and vocal groups) in the afternoon, and touching on some light-light classics after 9 PM.” Munroe said.
Seattle’s first news anchor [September 1951] – Charles Herring, interviewed on NWCN Cable News, September 2001, by Cam Johnson. Charles Herring left KING 5 in 1967, he and his wife purchased radio station KAPY/Port Angeles, which they operated until 1978. Herring died in January 2006 after a long battle with cancer.
*** In 1973, I drove up to Port Angeles to apply for a position at KAPY. I was a day late, the job had been snatched by someone else. Mr. Herring listened to my aircheck, asked me to put together a three-minute newscast and audition anyway.
