 WTIC AM FM TV3

 This is the meeting place for all who were employed by Travelers Broadcasting or Broadcast Plaza Inc prior to the sale of the stations  March 8, 1974. Television was sold to Post-Newsweek Stations and became WFSB TV3. Existing management set up the 1080 Corporation to operate the AM FM Radio side. They retained the WTIC radio call sign.

Bill Hennessey updates us on a monthly get-together:

A very informal group of radio/TV types – named, the Bunch Of Old Broadcasters (“B.O.O.B.s”) – gathers monthly at The Arch Street Tavern in Hartford to reminisce, become drunk and disorderly, and enjoy the fantastic Hartford Jazz Orchestra, a 16-piece Big Band aggregation of top-notch musicians.  Everyone is invited and many ex-TICers are attendees.  Usually, the last Monday of each Month is reserved for them. Pass the word. ‘Hope to see ya there!

All are welcome to this site to see the memorabilia, to learn about the personalities of the "good old days" and to find out what they are doing nowadays. The museum will display material of the time. Online displays will depend on what can be scanned and contributed by alumni and others.

Individuals listed on Personalities, Technicians and Support Personnel pages show what they did at WTIC, what they're doing now, and if they contributed remembrances, their name is a link. If they request it, an email link is included.

The broadcaster in the upper left corner was a registered trademark that continued at least through the 1080 Corp. Bill Mill says it was inspired by the following sermon:
"Truth never yet fell dead in the streets; it has such affinity with the soul of man, the seed however broadcast will catch somewhere and produce its hundredfold."

-- Rev. Thomas Parker, 1842

            According to George Conklin:  The statue of the broadcaster was created by Frances Wadsworth who is a well known Connecticut sculptor.
