WMAQ Channel 5 - NewsCenter5 At 5pm - "The Blizzard of '78" (Part 1, 1978)
Everyone remembers the great Blizzard of '79 - but how many people remember the Blizzard of 1978? Before the big snow in 1979 hit, this seemed fairly significant I guess, although not as bad as the Big Snow of 1967. Was this just a case of snow-perbole? You decide.
Here is Part 1 of some footage from the NewsCenter5 airing at 5pm on WMAQ Channel 5, with Mike Jackson, Ron Hunter, and Jerry Taft.
This part features a report on commuting by Gene Randall, the weather forecast by Jerry Taft, and a report on the weather troubles in Ohio by NBC correspondent Donna Fowler.
Commercials were unfortunately cut out from this original recording.
This aired on local Chicago TV on Thursday, January 26th 1978.
