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.
