In What’sNEW#1, posted February 2nd, mention was made of one of WNEW’s red mobile units, taking News Director Lee Hanna, Tech. Supervisor Shel Hoffman and engineer Howie Epstein to Washington D.C., Aug. 26, 1963 to cover the March On Washington. A photo of one of those Chrysler red hots, was discovered just a few days ago by chance on the internet. The photo, taken by Bill Cotter in April, 1965, shows the wagon in front of the Irish Pavillion, during the 1964/65 New York World’s Fair. Cotter posted the photo, and others, in 2010 on “World’s Fair Community.org.
When trade-in time came, WNEW stayed with the Chrysler New Yorker, but in quieter white.
