WJIM-TV Channel 6 Supposedly Shut Down in the 1950’s for Being So Bad? I Don’t Believe It…
Here's an interesting item I came across. What I do NOT understand is why they listed Lansing's WJIM Channel 6 as one of the "weird" TV channels.
This little video clip explains the weirdness of 10 TV channels; number 6 is WJIM, saying that it "became so bad the FCC shut (it) down" after owner Harold Gross let it get that way (he won a TV license in a card game). They don't say why ot how it got so bad.
However, in my attempt to find some extra history on WJIM-TV, nothing is said about that...unless it's buried or listed somewhere else.
Does anyone know if this is true or if someone got the wrong info?
