2 Give Us This Day

Addenda from Joseph: I suspect that the 6-6:15 P.M. hour (PT) on several stations was divided between 15 minute local and 15 minute network newscasts. KRCA-4 undoubtedly aired "Huntley/Brinkley" at 6:15, but did KNXT-2 air "The CBS Evening News" (with Douglas Edwards) at 6:30 or 6:45?? And since no programming for KABC-7 was listed for 5:30 to 6 P.M., can I assume that the station aired "The ABC News Evening Report" (I think Bill Shadel was a fill-in anchor in early 1961 following John Charles Daly's departure at the end of 1960) and a local 15-minuite newscast in the 5:30-6 P.M. half-hour??
