Indiana Broadcast Pioneers

Indiana Broadcast Pioneers We’re archiving the rich history of Indiana broadcasting The Indiana Broadcast Pioneers was organized in 1979, following the lead of several other national and state groups.

We are dedicated to offering opportunities for fellowship, education, public service, and the preservation of broadcast history. Ongoing projects include a quarterly newsletter, this website, the Richard M. Fairbanks Indiana Broadcast Hall of Fame, an exhibit at the Indiana State Museum, and occasional public programs featuring retired broadcasters. It is our hope to grow this website into an interesting digital repository for the rich history of broadcasting in Indiana.

https://www.facebook.com/jamil1/videos/569846730675928 Representing Indiana. A collague and I conducted mobile journalism training for students and working professionals in Bangladesh, via Zoom, and made the national news.
WTHI/Terre Haute circa 1987.
Today's Emergency Broadcast System is a disgrace, un-listenable and should be dealt with. It used to be a big deal to get it right every time. So, who do we see about this??......
An interesting book concerning WFBM in my collection from the Indianapolis broadcasting.
Larry King did his show on the Mutal Radio Network 40 years ago this month in Indianapolis from the WIFE studios. His guests included Indy 500 driver Dan Gurney and mayor Bill Hudnut. Here’s the story I did about King’s visit for WRTV 6.
Bake is Bake and has been for, whoa, the many years. And the late Lou Palmer, who I could listen to read the phone book and I would have been satisfied. Rare talents. Ain't we been lucky?? My shot of Jerry Baker and Lou as they stood at the top of Tower Terrace, one 1975 Practice afternoon at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
This report from Russ Dodge came yesterday: Another WTLC Air Force member gone but not forgotten. Fred Moore died today in Memphis from Covid complications. He was PD when I came to WTLC in 77. Always fun to work with. He actually let me fill in a few times as "The Unknown Disc Jockey". I did visit with him when he was at WDIA Memphis. RIP to a friend and class act. Prayers to his family.
Indy radio veteran Steve Cooper passed away today at his Indianapolis home at age 72 after an extended illness. Steve came to Indy to work on-air at WNDE shortly after their call letter change from WFBM in 1973. He later moved over to WIFE-am near the end of that station's top 40 days and stayed on as they switched to news-talk. Steve also did mornings at WFBQ in the early 80s prior to the arrival of Bob & Tom. He's probably most remembered for his 21 years doing mornings on WTPI (107.9), from 1984 until the format and calls were changed in 2005. In a 2005 interview, Steve told Nuvo's Marc Allan: "I love radio because it's a real personal, real one-on-one medium. I'm going to miss that. But if I never get behind a microphone again, I will consider that I had a good career."
We lost WTHI's Wayne Jenkins (left) earlier this year and December 2 would have been his 94th birthday. He was one of the first TV weathermen in Terre Haute as well as farm director. In the '80s, he created the syndicated farm show, "Ag Day." I had the privilege of working with Wayne early in my career. In this picture from '81, he's with reporter Bob Sabo and sports reporter/anchor Bob Ramsey at Ambrosini's, a favorite WTHI spot. Bonus: on the wall behind them are framed personality sketches from WTHI artist Pete Johnson.
Happy 71st Anniversary to WTTV! What will you do when you hit 75 in 4 years?

Hi, this is Len Clark, longtime Indiana broadcaster/educator. My colleague, Mike Castellucci and I have created a global mobile journalism initiative called CREATE WITH MOBILE. Here's a story from journalism,co.uk - https://www.journalism.co.uk/…/new-smartphone-j…/s2/a759883/
