One of the most historic photos I have come to own, the first scene ever on Koin TV. The technicians fussed for hours with the lights, microphone and cameras to make sure everything would transmit perfectly on a new thing called Television. Art Kirkham was a household name for thirty years in Portland due to his years on the radio, on October 15th, 1953 at 3:53:20 PM, Art welcomed viewers to KOIN. This photo is the moment he appeared on screens in Meier & Frank windows and homes across the metro area.
Why would you smile when over 34,000 jobs are going to vanish, great companies will also disappear, family owned stores will close their doors, no new developments, no new companies moving here and the billions handed to this union lackey can be blown anyway she pleases. Measure 97 is the end of Oregon's boom. Vote NO.
