It's an important day at NewsChannel5 - our 66th birthday! We celebrated by recreating five photos from our past. Take a look at WEWS, then and now.
1947: "Movie actor Jimmy Stewart, left, was the opening night star as WEWS made its debut on the air Dec. 17 with Jack R. Howard, center, president of Scripps-Howard Radio, and James C. Hanrahan, general manager of WEWS."
NewsChannel5's Chief Investigator Ron Regan, Anchor Leon Bibb and Reporter John Kosich recreate the classic photo.
July 18, 1962: "BEHIND THE SCENES -- WEWS Engineers Harry Sykora (left) and Harry Reeves work on one of the two new Television Tape Recorders which have just been installed ... The two new machines are the biggest and costliest in town..."
March 31, 1980: Bill Jacocks edits video at a desk.
NewsChannel5 reporter Kristin Volk works at her desk - quite different from the desk of the 1980s.
