Throwback Thursday: Vote for cable TV

Throwback Thursday: Vote for cable TV

Before cable television, we had the main three networks via antenna: ABC out of Kirksville/Ottumwa, CBS and NBC out of Des Moines, and sometimes PBS. Cable television was a big and controversial step that required a vote of the people. This ad urging a yes vote appeared in a 1969 edition of the Daily Iowegian. The Daily Iowegian and the Appanoose County Historical and Coal Mining Museum are partnering together to bring our readers “Throwback Thursday.” Watch each Thursday’s Daily Iowegian for a look at the past of Appanoose County.
