KJEO 47 Sportscaster Incident

You just got home from school and it’s Channel 30 Fun Time! Or maybe Nancy Allen's Movie Matinee on Channel 24. Don’t forget the BOSS 30's #1 KYNO. If you were sophisticated, you only listened to KFIG on some new airwave called FM. We honor the late great Al Radka here at Lost Fresno whose motto was Lettuce Eat it!

KJEO 47 Sportscaster Incident

In the late 70's or possibly early 80's, there was an on-air incident in which a seriously psychotic man displaying a pistol demanded that the Sporstcaster (Marc Cotta I believe) read a written manifesto. I don't remember the details of what was said but do vaguely remember the sportscaster being very scared and very nervous as the cameras kept rolling. I do remember it being during the 6PM Channel 47 News broadcast.
