ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The seventies saw two memorable political stories at News 4, both directly involving Channel 4 staff and sitting presidents.

One featured the Channel 4 news helicopter and a riverboat, the other took place in the News 4 newsroom.

In 1974 News 4 staffers were visibly excited, when President Gerald Ford dropped in for a first-hand look at our newsroom. 
 
Audio from our archived film was lost, it would be great to know what questions the president had about this new world of gathering and reporting news, electronically.
 
In 1979, another presidential encounter caught us a bit off-guard.
