WTMJ-TV Schedule, Week of Sunday, April 11th, 1948

Here’s the schedule for station WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the week starting Sunday, April 11th, 1948, straight from the weekly television listings printed in The Milwaukee Journal. Unlike the previous week, which saw the station on the air on Monday and Tuesday for special broadcasts, this week WTMJ-TV was back to its regular schedule. Unfortunately, for this week I don’t know anything about the guests making appearances on various WTMJ-TV programs like Man About Time or The Sportsman. Golden Wedding, introduced the previous week, televised Wisconsin couples celebrating their golden, or 50th, anniversaries.

Note that the schedule for Sunday, April 11th is an assumption based on previous programming.

    Incidentally, “The Last of the Mohicans”, which was seen on Sunday afternoons, was a 12 chapter Mascot serial (starring Harry Carey) originally released in the summer of 1932.
