SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Looking back in time, many of us remember television as a staple in our childhood days. 

ABC4 is lucky to have been a part of those memories, as it was the very first television station between Chicago and the West Coast. 

Craig Wirth took time this week to think back on ABC4’s first night on the air in Salt Lake City on April 19, 1948, just in time for the station’s 75th reunion.
