    KIVI at least looked more interesting than KTVB, which in terms of appearance and identity seemed years behind the curve in the early 90s...

    Incredible classic opens from the UK:

    Weekend World


    The London Programme - as a young kid, this open was spellbinding. The fact that the show aired late on Friday nights, and it was so gritty, made it even more cool.


    World in Action - early 80s

    Here's something interesting- anyone remember the USA Updates that were shown on the USA Network in the late 80s and the 90s? Everyone thought that they moved from being produced at KYW to the All-News Channel in 1991 after KYW's infamous revamp (causing the departure of Steve Bell, likely one of the reasons USA approached KYW/Group W to produced the updates). And yet, I found an update from 1993, still produced at KYW with Beverly Williams anchoring from one of the Art-Deco styled sets, just with a grey chrome-key BG. It makes you wonder why they moved at all, then.

    Checked out a little bit of the WLOS-TV Blizzard video and was glad to see Brenda Burch (former WTVK news anchor/reporter) in the video. She anchored coverage of the big Blizzard of '93 for WLOS.

    I am back with some rare goodies.

    We take you back to the early 1980s and Tuscaloosa, Alabama where we feature an intro for WCFT's "Eyewitness News" from this period. They used "Electro Phantasma" by Dave Grusin off the soundtrack to "The Electric Horseman".



    From 1987, here is an MPBN broadcast of the Mount View/Rockland game with a WABI news clip at the beginning. At :04 into the video is a WABI newscast open used in 1987 featuring an unknown news theme.



    From March 1989, here is a partial WHBF-TV newscast. WHBF-TV was one of the non-ABC stations to use Gari's News Series 2000 as its theme as they were CBS.

    Wow, the owners of WCFT sure liked that set, because they gave an identical one (with logo changes and the weather center on the opposite side) to their Yuma sister station (WCFT and KYEL were sisters between 1978 and 1990):



    That WCFT Alumni group where that came from has some good stuff, mostly images but a few videos, including this one:

    This is a news report on Jane Jayroe of KOCO-TV from 2014. At 1:00 in the vid you can see a brief part of a news open, with Dave Grusin's "The Electric Horseman" playing.

    This video has been on YT since 2009... 28 views for *another* early 90s KRBK newscast piece with the WSVN-ripoff aesthetic:



    KAPP in 1987. KVEW used this theme too, of course:



    And TUCSON??? KGUN's theme in 1986 was the Tuesday WNDU theme:

    Got some good old footage of WSOC, which goes back even to the early '80s (a rare find for channel 9). This was a report on Bill Walker's co-anchors over the time talking about his retirement (you even see old footage of Doreen Gentzler before her NBC days!)

    The first clip (around 1978) shows an open similar to that of WAGA and the Outlet stations. Also, "The News Image" is heard during a news tease (possibly 1984?)

    A KCBS Action News Sports special from April 1992. Note the secondary set, best recognizable as part of their 1986 set:

    From NewsActive3's channel; here's roughly 2 hours of NBC's 1978 midterm election night coverage (to my knowledge at least; this is the earliest midterm election night footage of a substantial amount I've run across)

    Part 1 (just over an hour an a half):


    Part 2 (around 33 minutes):

    Think The Weather Channel was the first to name winter storms? Think again. Here's WFSB in Hartford, CT covering Winter Storm "Ginger" way back in 1996.

    While checking out YouTube, I recently encounter rare WTVO footage from 1987. In 1984, WTVO's newscasts were known as "Newswatch 17". In 1987, WTVO's newscasts at the time were "News 17". Here is a clip of WTVO's "News 17" featuring a news close at 3:42 with an unknown theme playing.

    I immediately recognized that WTVO end theme; it's "The Ace of Swords" by The Alan Parsons Project.
