A very in depth look at how TV covered baseball in 1949 from a trade magazine from that era.

Of note in that year the White Sox were on WGN and the Cubs on WBKB


In 1961 they covered the opening of WGN-TV's new studios on Bradley Place


and another look at WGN in 1974


If you take a look at the equipment back then you can get a better understanding why games were not saved - videotape machines were expensive and so was the tape used.
