From KATU’s Facebook Page:
KATU’s infamous exploding whale
46 years ago KATU aired the infamous exploding whale.
We are big fans of archiving here at Storytellers. I personally find this story interesting because of two reasons.
First, it’s just simply fun to watch. Yeah the writing wouldn’t be celebrated today but their were some wonderful lines, especially at the end.
Secondly, it gives perspective as to how style and technology can change. I bet a few folks are still working in news when this story aired. Probably wondering where the time went?
Think about what you will see in your career, in your lifetime. Storytelling, however, is a constant. Style, well, that is always changing. It is happening to you right now.
