Hollywood Heritage Museum Presents a 70th Anniversary Tribute to KTLA
Please join Hollywood Heritage for a tribute to L.A.'s first television station! This special event will take  place Thursday, January 26 at 7pm in the Hollywood Heritage Museum's Lasky-DeMille Barn.

TV legend Tom Hatten will attend this evening celebrating the 70th anniversary of KTLA channel 5.

In January of 1947, Paramount Pictures and engineer Klaus Landsberg launched commercial television in Los Angeles. KTLA was the first station to hit the airwaves and set the course for T.V. in L.A. with a mix of talk shows, wrestling, game shows, and standout music and children's programming. The pioneering station was an early showcase for Lawrence Welk, Jack LaLanne, and Beany & Cecil, and to this day is the home of L.A.'s most watched news programs.  

Our panel of guests includes Tom Hatten, who started at the station in the early 1950s and hosted Popeye and Friends and the Family Film Festival, endearing him to generations of young Angelenos. Landsberg's first wife, journalist Evelyn De Wolfe, and longtime KTLA newsman Joel Tator will join us for a discussion moderated by Hollywood Heritage board member and Los Angeles magazine columnist Chris Nichols. Clips from early programming will be screened.  

De Wolfe and George Lewis, authors of "Line of Sight: Klaus Landsberg His Life and Vision", and Joel Tator, author of "Los Angeles Television" will have books available for purchase.
