Rex Trailer had several shows on WPTZ. They were Riding the Trail with Rex Trailer, High Noon with Rex Trailer and Rex Trailer's Ranch House. He was at WPTZ from 1950 until 1956.
Here's a short video clip of some color 16mm movie footage dating from about 1955. It had no audio. Rex was always shooting exterior shots for insertion into his live broadcasts. This clip is from one of those shoots.
