McCaw scores on sale of NY station


** I wonder what investments were made in Channel 13 after this sale. The station remained a low-budget operation (black & white cameras/1940s movies – TV reruns from the 1950s) until it was purchased (for $863K in 1972) by Blaidon Mutual Investors (Donald Wolfstone owned 80 %). Mr. Wolftsone was 85% owner of Wolfstone Investment & Real Estate in Seattle. He
was also sole owner of Wolfstone Investment Co. in Seattle. Blaidon Entertainment Management Co. in Seattle and 80% owner of Shopping Guide in Seattle.
