Television

The Times-Mirror Company was a founding co-owner of then-CBS turned independent (and eventual Fox TV flagship) television station KTTV. It became that station's sole owner in 1951, and remained so until the station was sold to Metromedia in 1963. For the next seven years, Times-Mirror had no television station until it purchased the Dallas Times Herald, the owner of KRLD-TV (now KDFW) in Dallas, Texas, in 1970.

Famous quotes containing the word television:

    Cultural expectations shade and color the images that parents- to-be form. The baby product ads, showing a woman serenely holding her child, looking blissfully and mysteriously contented, or the television parents, wisely and humorously solving problems, influence parents-to-be.
    Ellen Galinsky (20th century)

    Television ... helps blur the distinction between framed and unframed reality. Whereas going to the movies necessarily entails leaving one’s ordinary surroundings, soap operas are in fact spatially inseparable from the rest of one’s life. In homes where television is on most of the time, they are also temporally integrated into one’s “real” life and, unlike the experience of going out in the evening to see a show, may not even interrupt its regular flow.
