SYRACUSE -- This week, it's a combination of new and old -- the photo is new, but provides a look back at a blast from the past. And the timing seems appropriate, given some recent changes in the Syracuse TV landscape, and buzz about the future.
This classic WTVH Christmas ornament features a logo which, according to Logopedia, was in use from 1984 to 1993. Those were the CBS affiliate's final years under its original owner, Meredith Corporation, which launched the station in 1948. Amanda Hayden, who worked at WTVH for a couple years in the early 2000s, recently shared this photo on Facebook, and graciously allowed us permission to share it as a Picture of the Week.
A few of Hayden's friends who commented on the photo said they have similar ornaments, but with a different color scheme, presumably from a different year.
