Nearby residents in the 1900 block of Woodside Drive called police around a.m. reports that by 6 a.m., Thousand Oaks Police Department arrived at the scene to discover Genoveva wedged in the chimney unable to move with her hands outstretched above her head.
The police quickly called the Ventura County Fire Department’s urban search and rescue team for help.
KTTV converted the Nassour Studios into a major production house for television, producing programs locally and for the emerging syndication market.
Prior to the move, KTTV operated out of several different facilities, including the former headquarters of Capitol Records (which was later the longtime home of KHJ radio and what is now KCAL-TV) on Melrose Avenue.
The fire department raised their ladder with a basket attached, put Genoveva inside the basket and lowered her to the safety of level ground where she was taken to Los Robles Regional Medical Center for an examination, and then arrested for illegal entry and providing false information to an officer.Later in 1950, CBS chose to acquire its own station in Los Angeles – KTSL (channel 2, later KNXT and now KCBS-TV) – which was being spun off by the Don Lee Broadcasting System as a result of its sale to General Tire and Rubber.The KTSL purchase forced CBS to divest its interest in KTTV due to FCC rules in effect at the time that barred the common ownership of two television stations in the same media market; the Los Angeles Times would regain full ownership of channel 11 when the sales were finalized on January 1, 1951.By the early 1990s, it began to run afternoon cartoons from the network's Fox Kids block (which debuted in 1990), as well as top rated off-network sitcoms during the evening hours.KTTV removed cartoons on weekday mornings in June 1993, due to the launch of the morning newscast Good Day L. In 2001, Fox Television Stations acquired several UPN affiliates owned by Chris-Craft Industries through its BHC Communications station group, effectively creating a duopoly between KTTV and KCOP-TV (channel 13).
