REMEMBER THIS DURING EARLY TV YEARS?

NAB Seal of Good Practice logo, commonly used from 1958
to 1964.


The code prohibited the use of profanity, negative portrayal
of family life, irreverence for God and religion, illicit sex,
drunkenness and biochemical addiction, presentation of
cruelty, detailed techniques of crime, the use of horror for
its own sake, and the negative portrayal of law enforcement
officials, among others. The code regulated how performers
should dress and move to be within the "bounds of
decency".

Further, news reporting was to be "factual, fair and without
bias" and commentary and analysis should be "clearly defined
as such". Broadcasters were to make time available for religious broadcasting and were discouraged from charging religious
bodies for access. Most importantly, it limited the commercial
minutes per hour.

LEGENDARY WEATHERMAN HAS DIED AT 87

Willard Scott's Life & Career — He Worked with NBC for 65 Years and 35 of Them Were on 'Today'

Willard Scott, legendary TODAY weatherman, dies at 87
Willard Herman Scott Jr. (March 7, 1934 – September 4, 2021)

 

 

(The New York Times) – Willard Scott, the antic longtime weather forecaster on the “Today” show, whose work, by his own cheerful acknowledgment, made it clear that you don’t need a weatherman
to know which way the wind blows, died on Saturday at his farm in Deplane, Va. 

His death was confirmed by his wife, Paris Keena Scott. She did
not specify a cause, saying only that he had died after a brief
illness.

Mr. Scott, who had earlier played both Bozo the Clown and the
original Ronald McDonald on television (below), was among
the first of a generation of television weathermen who stressed showmanship over science.
