KFSN-TV in Fresno, Ca., opens an "Action News" broadcast during October of 1978 with the launch of Fresno's first public radio station, KVPR-FM -- or, more accurately, the problems the station encountered as it prepared to sign-on for the first time. Robin Fern (later Garrison) is the anchor.

At the time this was recorded, KFSN was a CBS affiliate owned by Capital Cities Communications. The "Action News" opening seen here is similar to one used by then-sister stations WTVD in Durham, N.C., and WKBW-TV in Buffalo, N.Y., on their respective "Eyewitness News" programs. In 1985 KFSN and WTVD became ABC owned-and-operated stations after CapCities purchased ABC.
