SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – As we approach the 75th anniversary of Utah’s first television station, ABC4’s Craig Wirth has been taking time recently to reflect on some of the greatest news stories that came out of the last seven and-a-half decades. Though he hasn’t seen it all, he has certainly seen most of it. 

This week, Wirth has dug up a video from June 26 of 1983, what is now known as the blowing up of the Newhouse Hotel. 

Check out the video above, and do as Utahns did back on that summer day in 1983, grab a front row seat and some popcorn to watch the hotel blow.
