The WTMA Control Room circa 1973-74. This color shot from Steve Russell lets you clearly see that the board faced windows that let the jock see the transmitter's meters. In the early 1980s the WTMA Control Room was remodeled and the control board would face 90 degrees to the left of the vantage point pictured here.

This diagram by John Burwell shows how the WTMA/WPXI offices and studios were laid out
between 1973 and 1979. (Chuck Smith was the owner; John Trenton was the GM.)
