RADIO ECONOMICS BECOMES TV ECONOMICS. The radio station of the near future will look like...a TV Station. Until 1970, most TV stations, even in the smallest towns had live on-air studios. Some of them had three full live studios. They produced, in house, local shows for many hours a day: A kid's show, entertainment shows, cooking, dance shows. Right now at KPIX TV in San Francisco there are three beautiful studios, one with studio audience seating and a separate entrance for the audience. Only one studio, the news studio, is in use.
