Original KCPQ 13 Sign-On As Commercial Station

This is the 32 minute launch of KCPQ TV Ch. 13 Tacoma as a commercial station on Nov. 4, 1980. Their launch program after the preview was “The Deer Hunter.”


(32 min)

A little history: KCPQ signed off on Feb. 28, 1980 as a PBS station. Its tentative TV listings were posted by Seattle papers for Oct. 28-Nov. 3 but were never broadcast as far as I know. More about that another time.

Keep up the good work!!

Walter Kelley Gets Into The Weather

KCPQ 13 Weather Man Walter Kelley really gets into his forecasts. He is the most animated of all weathercasters in the Puget Sound region. Fun & informative.

KCPQ is the ONLY Seattle TV station offering Chromecast streaming from their website LIVE stream. Keeping up with technology helps viewers and brings more viewers to the newscast.
