The academic school year 1983/1984 probably had many news events, but for some reason, KTRU News did not report them. While some years have three to five news reels, 1983/1984 only has one. The inventory that accompanied the tape states: “Sorry, guys, but News sorta died until mid-march ’84 . . . Oh, well . . .”
There was one interesting news story on the reel, which had two follow-up reports. This was the September 9, 1983 food fight at the Sid Richardson College servery. If you want to know more, take a moment to hear the shifting story delivered by Dave Collins and David Tuttle about the event.
Below is the Thresher’s take on the story.
