General election Nov. 1964 with Mike Miller

I never knew where the term "Klieg light" came from until I saw this picture
(at the top, there is a light that says "Kliegl Bros.")

KVOO-TV did indeed use a black and white camera to shoot graphics and photo faxes (most were B & W anyway) because they had no choice.

There is a photo of the camera on the TTM KVOO-TV page on election night. The date is not correct, however, because I was at KOTV in 1968 (this picture was previously billed as Nov. '68...webmaster) . Must have been 1964 or possibly 1966.

That election night photo ("Election set at KVOO with Mike Miller") is most likely from 1964, because the RCA color TV set over on the left is either a CTC16 that was sold from 1964-65, or a CTC20 sold from 1965-66. The CTC20 is less likely; if this had been shot in fall 1965, the advertiser would probably have featured a CTC17X instead.

Happened upon your page about the KVOO election set. That is definitely from 1964. The first column on the left hand side has the Johnson-Goldwater presidential race (statewide, then Tulsa Co. only), followed by the Fred Harris - Bud Wilkinson race for U. S. Senate (statewide and Tulsa Co.).

That was also the first year that Tulsa County had more than one state senate district, the result of a Federal court order. Previously, the 19 most populous counties each had a state senator, while each pair of the remaining counties shared a senator. You can see the announcer pointing to the name Bartlett, the GOP nominee for Senate 39 -- future Governor Dewey Bartlett
