A Scene That I Love: Happy Thanksgiving from WKRP!


It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without sharing these scenes that I love from the classic sitcom, WKRP in Cincinnati.

Believe it or not, this episode was based on a true story!  It didn’t happen in Ohio.  Instead, it happened in Atlanta, Georgia and it was real promotion stunt for a local station, WQXI.  Years later, a young copywriter named Hugh Wilson heard the story while he was working WQXI.  Wilson later moved to California, started writing scripts, and eventually created WKRP In Cincinnati.

I always feel bad for the turkeys but I am glad that the survivors were able to launch a counter attack.

Happy Thanksgiving!
