  • Notes

    • KELLY LANGE: The second contestant is a Los Angeles, California, KABC Radio news and traffic helicopter reporter named Kelly Lange. KABC gave Kelly the name of "Dawn O'Day" since she worked the morning rush hour shift. They dubbed Kelly's counterpart, Lorri Ross, who worked the evening rush hour shift, "Eve O'Day." John Daly said that their names were chosen in a naming contest. The pair, called the "KABC Ladybirds," flew in the KABC Traffic Copter. They started on Valentine's Day 1967 and continued through 1970. They wore sexy tight silver flight "spacesuit" outfits, helmets and silver go-go boots. They also made goodwill public appearances and were featured in newspaper articles and Time Magazine. See vintage KABC-AM TalkRadio 790 photos at the web site below:
