KWKR-FM 99.9 Garden City KS Lorie Hyten 1985

Back in 1985, KIUL-KWKR had 2 fulltime newspeople: Mike Scheopner and Lorie Hyten. Mike typically handled afternoon news for both stations while Lorie held down the morning shift. They rotated Saturdays. Here, Lorie does the 12:50PM Saturday newscast for KWKR. A few months later, Lorie left the stations and Mike Scheopner took her morning shift. Bill Roy from Wichita was hired to fill the afternoon news position.

This was recorded from my residence in Garden City. Equipment used was a Pioneer SX-3900 receiver with wire dipole antenna and a Technics stereo cassette deck. Source tape is an inexpensive Certron LN60.
