During filming for the pilot, Sanders was injured when a light fell on him. There was nothing to be done except to put a band-aid over the injury and continue filming. From that day until the series' cancellation, Sanders chose to have a band-aid *somewhere* on Les' body in every single episode!
After the series ended he did various guest-star appearances on series such as Murder, She Wrote. He also returned to news-casting in the sequel series The New WKRP in Cincinnati (1991-1993). He is currently doing live theatre.
Happy Birthday, Richard Sanders!
