WHITE August 22, 1980 Volume 23, Number 33 Keflavik, Iceland FALCON NBS expands TV schedule Beginning Saturday August 30th, TV-4 will initiate a new television schedule with expanded daily broadcast hours. Ensign Glendon M. King, CIC of U.S. Navy Broadcasting Service Detachment Eight said "The new TV schedule was a result of numerous requests and comments from the military community. We took a look at our programming assets, our manpower re- sources and the desires of the community and came up with what we consider a very good schedule," he said. "What it will mean is that TV-4 will begin its program day at 7 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. Monday - Thursday and 11 a.m. on Fridays." "The reason for the later Friday sign on is to give our engineers an opportunity to service and maintain the various equipment. In addition to expanding the program day we have developed a program block from approxi- mately noon - 2:30 p.m. of major entertainment and information for the shift worker. We realize that due to the nature of his or her work schedule many of the prime time popular TV shows are not normally shown during his off time. We think we have remedied that," he said. Ensign King went on to explain that TV-4 is part of Detachment Eight of the Navy Broadcasting Service with headquarters in Washington D.C. "Our primary mission is information. That can include anything from club meet- ings to command policies." The programs themselves are received from the American Forces Radio and Television Service in Los Angeles, California, and for the most part the programs are the same world-wide. One of the major problems AFRTS Los Angeles faces is the fact that the major networks broadcast their programs for approximately 26 weeks and then repeat them again as summer re-runs. AFRTS-LA does not have a summer re-run policy and keeps the bulk of its programs changing on an infrequent basis in order to avoid reruns. It may sound confusing but it is de- signed to give the audience the best variety possible of what each of the major networks offer. Ensign King concluded by saying that "Detachment Eight is here to serve the military member and their dependents and with the expanded TV hours we hope we can better serve."
