Transcript Page 6 BROADSIDE May 1974 FCC: On Women Anchors: In December they said "it couldn't be done" but Channel 2 has hired a woman reporter and ANCHOR, Sarah Lowery, who was one of two anchorwomen with a Dallas CBS affiliate. Big 2 thus becomes the first station in Houston to take a giant leap for womankind. Channel 11 is apparently "still looking". Knowing the caliber of wome of the women who have auditioned for this job and knowing that publications like Ms. and SPOKESWOMAN exist in which ads could have been placed, we seriously question just how much in earnest KHOU-TV really has been ALL of these months. Then there is Channel 13 which gave veteran reporters Elma Barrera and Teal Salaun a "big break" for two weeks of ten-minute anchoring (9:20 AM from April 8-19) only, as it now appears, as "fill-ins" for vacationing Tom Campbell. Get with it, Channel 13. Feminists On The Air: Easter Sunday at 10:30 PM audiences had their choice of seeing (1) Big 2 News Conference with Poppy Northcutt interviewed by three women reporters (reverse sexism?); or (2) Channel ll's IMPACT with "Sexism in Education" as its subject and Kay Whyburn, Mary Buxton, and Marge Randall as guests, discussing the issue and the recent demonstration at the National School Board Association (which received some excellent coverage by Channel 11 reporter Michael Arra); or listening to (3) a discussion on KILT (10 PM-1 AM) between NOW members Teanne Necaise and Betty Barnes and HOW (Happiness of Women) representatives. Although Texas was one of the first states to ratify the ERA, the HOW members insisted on debating it since it was clearly the only issue they had researched. Barnes and Necaise debated and contradicted all the old well-worn issues. Then came a not-so-nostalgic trip back to the 50's when HOW members began charging the leadership of NOW and supporters of the ERA as Communists. Barnes & Necaise remained remarkably restrained while strongly defending their own reputations and the leadership and reputation of NOW. Let Ed Brandon, Channel 13 host of "Turn On" , know you appreciated his fair treatment of the beauty contest debate. Tanet Chaftez and Cilia Estrada discussed sex-role stereotyping with beauty contestants and a male beauty pageant promoter. The Houston Beauty Pageant has emphemistically added the words "and scholarship" to the contest title but they still take contestants' measurements. In other words, the better your bod - the better your chances for a college education. Peggy Hall and Margo Bishop received four one-minute equal time spots on KILT radio to respond to the personal bigotry of K.C. Kouba (contracted by the station to do short and controversial sports commentaries). Kouba's favorite expression for a woman is "broad" or "dumb broad" and in a single one-minute newscast he managed to use it four times. Women athletes were the source of his wrath. KILT management was extremely cooperative in granting us equal time and in straightening out Kouba. The Women's Center has a file on each radio and television station. Please bring all of the letters you have written and place them in these files. There is a most important Task Force meeting on Tuesday, May 14, at 8 PM. It will concern our monitoring results and our planned visits to stations to check their FCC applications filed on May 3 and to discuss the legal action we are planning to take in coalition with WEAL and HCWPC.
