Detroit's Classic TV

White Fang? Black Tooth? Bill Kennedy's Sunday movie? If any of these bring back fond memories of growing up in Detroit then you should definitely check out the exhibit currently running at the Detroit Historical Museum. Detroit's Classic TV Personalities pays tribute to several of the entertainment and news broadcasting legends that many of us grew up watching. Included in this exhibit are salutes to Soupy Sales, movie host Bill Kennedy, Emery King, Amyre Makupson, John Kelly and Marilyn Turner. If you want to find out more about the rich history of Detroit television, check the library catalog for From Soupy to nuts: a history of Detroit television by Tim Kiska and A newscast for the masses: the history of Detroit television journalism by the same author.
