My Dad worked at KPTV when it was owned by Chris Craft. The lobby was identical. I wish he could see these today.

Here's how Chris-Craft became part of the KPTV name: Bing Crosby, Chairman of the Board of Director of NAFI Corp. (formerly known as: National Automotive Fiber Industries) purchased KPTV for $1,026,940 plus liquidation of $2,734.924 in obligations on June 4, 1959. (FCC approved: 7-23-59; transfer: 9-1-59). NAFI merged with Chris-Craft in 1960 and the company name was offically changed to Chris-Craft in May 1962.
