Today in Television History (April 21st)

April 21st 1982 - The final episode of "WKRP in Cincinnati" aired on CBS.
Season 4 episode 22
"Up and Down the Dial" 
The new ratings arrive, and WKRP has finally become a successful station, rising to #6 in the Cincinnati market with Johnny Fever as the #1 DJ. But when a new news director (Nicholas Hormann) shows up and says he was hired by Mama Carlson, Andy soon finds out that she plans to change the station to a 24-hour news format. Trivia: This was the final episode, but at the time the show was expected to be renewed, leaving no opportunity for a specific series "finale."
