When All the Best Shows Were Syndicated

From Variety: "Tough times at NATPE" by Cynthia Littleton (01/26/10).  "The annual gathering of TV station buyers and programming execs has been in a transitional mode for more than a decade ... But the plan to move the gathering next year to [Miami] has many longtime attendees feeling that NATPE '10 is the bookend on an era that began in the mid-1980s with the explosion of the firstrun syndie biz."

A little nostalgia, and a wave to the FK fans who went to NATPE '96 to Save Our Show.  Seven of you, right?  Thank you.
