Aircheck: Various News Outlets, 6/17/1994

Twenty-five years ago tonight, the most news event of our time was taking place. Back in 2012, I mentioned what I was doing that night – working for the Sun Radio Network, and watching almost every news outlet watching this Ford Bronco.

Most of the footage is from CNN, with Larry King narrating the events as things began to develop when Larry King Live was on the air that Friday night. They took their footage from various Los Angeles stations including KTLA, KTTV, and KCAL

The person uploading the video must have been from the Seattle area as local anchors from KING-TV (the Seattle NBC station) cut in – a portion of the clip shows the NBA Finals game from that night (the Knicks beat the Rockets 91-84 to go up 3-2 in a series they’d eventually lose). Even NBC seemed flummoxed about what to do about the Simpson chase, showing it at times, split-screening it with the basketball game at other times.

All in all, a crazy night – as I said in 2012, easily the craziest night of my radio career.
