Celebrating 70 Years of KTTV: The Beatles & Jesus

- KTTV is about to celebrate its 70th birthday! That's right, our station hit the air in January of 1949 and we've been cranking out all kinds of news stories ever since. To celebrate we are digging out 70 stories from our massive Channel 11 archive!

These stories will first air Friday nights on the 10 pm news. Our first story is one in which our reporter at the Capitol Records building in Hollywood got a one-on-one interview with John Lennon. 

It's old film from 1966 of John, Paul, George and Ringo addressing  that controversy they triggered when John said the Beatles were... "more popular than Jesus."

Chris Carter, who has Beatles shows on KLOS Radio and SiriusXM, talks us through what happened back then!
