Breakfast News Service
For a little over a year, from December 1971 to 1973, WBNS-AM instituted a morning news block called the Breakfast News Services. BNS. Get it?
Among the people involved in the program were Dick Boyer, Chet Long, Ted Mullins, and Wayne Byers. In addition, News Director Don Smith, Bob Jeffrey, Ed Ross and Bill Hamilton were involved in the all news in the morning effort.
The program ended in March of 1973 with the hiring of Bob Conners as morning host for the station.
This was during the time the station was making the transition from standards, big band and CBS network programming to a more contemporary sound.
