LANSING HISTORY: Fox 47 Debuts, December 1, 1982
The photo gallery below shows you some of the very first images broadcast on Lansing's TV station, WFSL, now called Fox 47, WSYM.
It began calling themselves "Independent Station TV 47" on December 1, 1982 and later became a Fox affiliate.
The video clip farther down kicked it all off on that first day of December, 1982. Interesting to see the programs they were promoting at the time.
Even farther down is a video showing the original sign-on credits.
Just before their very first sign-on program, they gave credit where credit was due. This roll of credits includes many people and organizations in our area, possibly many you know personally.
In these credits you’ll see us – WFMK – along with Magic Johnson, Boogie Bob Baldori, our late radio comrade Larry Estlack and many, many others.
Sit back and watch another small piece of Lansing broadcast history!
