I am trying to do some research on Omaha television news from back in the early 1960s and I am hoping you may be able to give me a helping hand or point me in the right direction.
As I recall, there was an on-air newscaster, possibly on KETV, in the early 1960s. It turned out that he had abandoned his family and previous life in Minnesota (at least I think it was Minnesota). Someone from Minnesota was in Omaha and saw him on TV and contacted his family. He claimed to have had a boating accident while fishing and suffered from amnesia and settled in Omaha. I believe he then returned to his previous life.
Does this sound familiar in any way? I am trying to track down the facts of the story. Can you shed any light on it or pass me along to someone else who may be of some help?This sounds more like a "Guiding Light" storyline or an old "Unsolved Mysteries" segment. However, if any of you oldtimers know can fill in any blanks, please enlighten us via the comments feature, or shoot us an email.
Perhaps YOU could solve a mystery.
