Does anyone know why Walt Millers photograph is not working? I am his daughter Deborah and he announced my birth over the air on August 12, 1962. He was also responsible for taping the Baptist church service on Sundsys. He was a pioneer and, one of the first, if not the first mobile news units in the Bay Area. He also worked for KWEB, and KSOL, AP (Associated Press,) and U.P.I. (United Press Internstional). I really like the content on your website but, was saddened that my fathers link and photos are missing. Maybe, you are unaware that your link are not working. Before there was a photo and, a call sheet up now the link has a line through it. I have some memorabilia at my sisters house from my father time at the station. If you are interested in seeing it please send mail to my email address.
